A study was made of the pathogenic role of gallbladder hypomotility, which is presumably responsible for the high incidence of gallstone disease in long-standing diabetes mellitus. The gallbladder motility of diabetic patients (n = 10) was measured by means of quantitative hepatobiliary scintigraphy, and the severity of concomitant autonomic and sensory polyneuropathy was determined. The presence of marked gallbladder hypomotility was proven, and a positive correlation was observed between the severity of autonomic neuropathy and the contractile disorder. In this group of diabetic patients, a hypaesthetic sensory polyneuropathy too was recognized, the degree of which exhibited a positive correlation with the autonomic neuropathy score. This study underlines the important role of the autonomic neural dysfunction in the development of gallbladder hypomotility accompanying long-term diabetes mellitus.
