In brief: Depends on how the

Gallbladder ejection fraction was performed.
If the gallbladder contraction drug (cck or sincalide) was administered at a dose of 0.02 micrograms/kilogram over 1 hour, then a normal gallbladder ejection fraction would be greater than or equal to 38% at one hour. Unfortunately, there is variability in the % depending on exactly how it is performed. Check with your doctor for what normal is.

In brief: Normal gb values

The percentages presented for gall bladder ejection fractions are normal for adult.
Consult your physician to exclude other causes of pain such as related to stomach and pancreas. There are gall bladder diets. see http://gallbladderattack.com/gallbladderdiet.shtml

In brief: 35%-90% normal range

In our lab gallbladder ejection fractions between 35% and 90% are considered normal.
Having trouble with eating can be caused by many different problems other than the gallbladder, including problems with ones stomach or intestines.
