Hi I am wondering if Gastroperisis is a life time thing or does it go away one day like it appeared I have been dx with it about a month ago some days are good that I might be able to hold some foods down This has been going on a few years A dx was nice finally it took that long to find a dr that new about it I am still unable to work due to the abdominal pain and bloat and also the vomiting What foods work for any one else and how do they manage every day life with it I am taking meds but not a fantastic response with them
Welcome to the gastroenterology community! In most cases, gastroparesis is a life time thing. I would recommend trying a gastroparesis diet which is a low-fiber, low-fat diet, with eating small frequent meals throughout the day. What medications have you tried?
I am taking Raglan and Imimpremine( a depression drug that has been shown to empty the stomach) Was told to stop taking the Raglen though. The dr says no fiber no whole grains no fatty- thats ok had gallbladder removed last year so use to that Most protiens dont work either can eat most of the time turkey breast not smoked also have GERD Somedays things will work the next time tried may get sick protien drinks no good Is this just a try and see thing I have pulled up the gastro diet and had a little help but nothing steady Am I going to have to eat the same things forever over and over its getting to be I rather not eatt and how can you eat healthy
What country do you live in? You may not be eating "healthy" in terms of fiber including high fiber vegetables, but if you google high fiber foods, you will find a list of things you need to avoid. You just need to try and find a protein source that works for you, which can be tricky.
also recently diagnosed with this thing- taking domperidome with some positive results but like you good and bad days, dr now suggesting botox shots to relax spincter muscle at bottom of the stomach, -a temporary(if it works at all) fix. the diet is the biggie, calories proteins,carbs- get a good gastrologist-and nutritionist- best of luck to you
