In brief: Borderline result

35% gb ejection fraction in most labs is borderline normal.
Your physician has to consider gb ejection fraction along with symptoms of biliary colic for proper therapy.Ingestion of food prior to study does affect result. Being diabetic I do not know how many hours fasting prior to test. Usually 6-8 hours.

In brief: HIDA

Cck administration for calculation of gallbladder ejection fraction can cause abdominal pain and cramping when administered.
In addition, stressful situations can adversely affect your glucose levels. Gallbladder ejection fraction of 35% is borderline low and could be causing your abdominal symptoms. Many places use 35% as the cutoff for normal gallbladder ejection fraction.
