Stone > 1cm, medical management wont help. Surgery is definetely indicated if you have pain. Observation vs surgery is a grey zone in the management of asymptomatic gallstone. I suggest you meet a Gastroenterologist for discussion.

Only way is to avoid milk or use another milk or eg if you use cow's milk try goat milk and see. If you stop milk take curdled milk by adding curd to milk and keep for only 2 hours ( for benefits of milk and dairy )

Mr T Subba Rao, are you having T1 or T2 DM? By referring as 'Insulin dependent" you mean, to control sugar levels along with oral drugs Insulin injections are also being used is it? Any way, If your fasting level is closer to 100 mg and PP around 150 to 160 mg and HbA1c% <7, then the disease is in good control. Gastric trouble is very non specific description. Are you having hyperacidity or belching with gaseousness or burning sensation in the epigastric region ? What is the problem? Most often hyperacidity occurs due to a number of reasons like over weight, smoking, alcoholism, eating too much of spicy food, remaining hungry for very long time, irregular food habits etc. To control this you should develop regular food habits, eat a small quantity every 2 to 3 hours, avoid spicy, oily and too sweet foods. Refrain from smoking and alcohol. Remain erect afer food for at least 2 to 3 hours. Avoid taking pain killers and other drugs which initiate gastric secretions. Use antacids if need be.
