See your doctor: May you have a gallbladder problem or many other issues. If you have slow gastric emptying (common in diabetes) your doctor can help with the bloating. If you have constipation your doctor can help you with a plan. If you are having food sensitivities you may need to try a gluten free diet. See your doctor for the diagnostic work up to include the bleed work to screen for these issues.

Yes: Technically, a bad gallbladder doesn't actually make your abdomen objectively swell much, but it can sure make one feel very bloated and gassy. And a 7% ejection fraction is very low and indicates a dysfunctional gb.
