What bile duct diseases cause digestive problems?

Gallstones occur when different components of bile harden and crystallize, and over time they can block the bile duct, according to Heathline. Gallstones can cause digestive problems because symptoms of this disease include nausea and vomiting, as well as clay-colored stools. During a gallstone attack, when the stone blocks the bile duct, people often experience intense stomach pain and loss of appetite, as well as other symptoms unrelated to the digestive tract.
