I'm a diabetic and recently had a study completed. I experience nausea, headaches and a swollen stomach and have been diagnosed with a gallbladder ejection rate of 24 percent. Would gallbladder removal be recommended?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. With lower functions of gallbladder, taking it out would be wise. But remember in diabetes, diabetic gastroparesis is normal and the issue may still be there even after gall bladder removal.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
