Welcome to the forum. I am really glad to help you out. Dietrine carb blocker shouldn’t cause any problems or worsening of the gall stone condition. For gallstones, there are many treatment options which are available but the best option is still the surgery.

Surgery is the definitive treatment for gallstones. This is especially in the case of symptomatic gallstones (if they produce pain). You need to avoid the fatty food intake as that’ll obviously increase the possibility of worsening of the symptoms. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
