Yes: Spicy, fatty, and greasy foods tend to cause exacerbations of gallbladder symptoms. They generally should be avoided if you wish to minimize gallbladder issues.

Gallbladder diet: Low fat is better, avoid fried foods, the above is ok but drink lots of water, and if you are having gb attacks, get an opinion from a general surgeon, they specialize in gb problems.
