General Surgeon Dr. Mitesh R. Trivedi's  Response
There is no co-relation between gall bladder removal and heart problems. So, gall bladder removal does not help in reducing heart problems.

my niece is 16 years old and we just learned today that her gallbladder is functioning 25% rather than the preferred 35% (results of test done last Friday morning). She has NO gallstones, had an ultrasound first and then the hida test? so we have been dealing with this since Dec. 2013. She is in constant pain and has been nauseated a lot, felt sicky and thrown up late at night twice. Is it possible for her to do some type of cleanse when she is not in school for a couple of days to try and avoid surgery to remove her gallbladder? she is seeing the pediatric surgeon on Feb. 19th.

My husband's heart is beating loudly and seems to be beating irregularly. I took his blood pressure and it was normal. His heart rate was 102bpm. He also has an urge to cough periodically. He's had these episodes happen before and the cough has helped at times. Do we need to be concerned? His father died from heart disease and started having an irregular heart beat when he was 35.
