I wouldn’t bother buying anything from the site, but check out:

http://www.gallbladderattack.com/gallbladderdiet.shtml

From the site:

Do not avoid all fats unless you are in attack or close to attack mode. Even then, a small amount of the flax oil in the beet recipe can be helpful. Fat-free and low-fat diets can be a cause for gallbladder problems as well as too much of the wrong fats. The body needs fats. Use omega 3 oils like flax or hemp. These are both delicious on salads. Cold-pressed, extra-virgin olive oil is also recommended. Use with vinegar or fresh lemon juice.

Some of the stuff on there appears to be BS (like the coffee enemas), but the diet info seems reasonable.

I vaguely recall being taught a bit about the gall bladder years ago.  It stores bile and excretes it when needed.  I think a bit of fat it ok, but you don’t want a fatty meal, or a fatty food by itself.  It’s slightly similar to your sugars, since you’re a diabetic.  You still need sugars or carbs, but you don’t want a sudden increase.  If you’re going to eat some avocado for example, make sure you’re eating something low in fat with it.  I could be wrong, so I would recommend checking out some more resources and even discussing it more with your doctor or a registered dietician.

No grease.  Howwever, you do need to watch that a stone doesn’t get stuck and cause more problems.  Then that becomes emergency surgery.

Definately follow a low fat diet, and ask your doctor for the signs of the stones causing a blockage – in which case you should go to the er.  I managed to postone getting mine removed for a few months to make it more convenient for my employer, but that last month was tough.  I had a few bad attacks though – one I probably should have gone to the er for, but it was the first and I didn’t know what it was.
