Expert Answer

Bile contains cholesterol, bile salts, and waste products such as bilirubin. Bile salts help in the emulsification of fats and thus in their digestion. Bile passes out of the liver through the bile ducts and is stored in the gallbladder. After a meal, it is released into the small intestine.

When the bile ducts become blocked, they fail to deliver the bile salts to the intestines, preventing the absorption of some fats and vitamins. Due to this, the person will experience lack of appetite. Also due to the blocked bile ducts, bile builds up in the liver, and jaundice (yellow color of the skin) develops due to the increasing levels of bilirubin in the blood.
