Hey King...Yes, an upper endoscopy can be used to detect GERD. To be honest, I am not positive about it being used to detect gallbladder issues...I know there are specific scans that can be done to check the gallbladder. I have also read that and endoscopy can detect gallbladder issues. On that one, your best bet would be to call your doctors office and find out, as I am not confident enough to give you an exact answer when it comes to the gallbladder.

Keep us posted about you! And, I am glad that the aloe vera juice has been helping! It is great when you are able to find something that works!
