Diabetic gastroparesis food

Common Questions and Answers about Diabetic gastroparesis food

diabetes

Avatar n tn It's where there is nerve damage ranging from mild to severe in the stomach, and the impulses that process the food through the stomach are slowed. Severe cases must be put on liquid diets, etc. Ok, I have none of the symptoms (fullness upon eating, nausea, etc.) but my doctor wants me to have a test done via x-ray to monitor movement of food through the stomach. Doctor thinks that high nightime glucose levels are due to food being digested after humalog has worn off.
Avatar n tn just wondering if u ever resolved your symptoms. I was diagnosed with gastroparesis several months ago and just had the gallbladder removed last week. Should have gone home that afternoon and was in hospital for one week with tube down nose into stomach empyting intestines. Was bloated where I looked 6 months pregnant. Doctor said the stress from the surgery could have brought back the gastroparesis. I had been on domperidone and reglan for a couple of months and it had gotten better.
Avatar f tn I see an endocrinologist for Graves Disease with hyperthyroidism and he sees a lot of diabetic patients with gastroparesis. He says that Reglan has a lot of side effects and has held off on the script. My gastroenterologist says reglan is the only drug for gastroparesis and gave me a script for it. I have been reluctant to take them though. I have not felt well for a very long time also.
Avatar f tn After having a colonoscopy, endoscopy, capsule study, and stomach emptying study I have been diagnosed with Gastroparesis. I have been given medication that does not work, lost weight (no complaint there), constantly feel full, and have pain. I have been told there is no cure for this and this diagnosis is usually found in people with diabetes which Im not a diabetic. I have been to see two doctors in this field and Im looking now for a third opinion. I just want to feel better. ANy advise?????
Avatar f tn I have had my appendix removed also. I am not diabetic, and have no thyroid conditons that would cause gastroparesis. It is unknown why I have it. I am in constant pain(lower abdominal) and have acutally lost jobs due to being ill. I need help and some answers. If you have any answers or treatments that may work, please, I am begging someone to help me.
Avatar f tn Two weeks ago I was diagnosed with severe gastroparesis. They are trying to figure out the cause. Is dysmotility in the GI tract a definite symptoms of an autonomic dyfunction? I am scared I have some major neurological problem that is causing this. I have carpal tunnel in both wrists but other than that I don't experience any other neuro symptoms. I was reading about amyloidosis causing neuropathy and I got so freaking out thinking I could have that.
Avatar n tn I was so fascinated by the number of people who suffer with gastroparesis. I have diabetic gastroparesis. I have been diabetic for 34 years and developed this disorder 6 years ago. I had surgery on my hands and developed a complication called neuropathy. There are a couple of kinds. One is where you can't feel anything, like in your feet(that is why there are so many foot and leg amputations.) Some diabetics can't feel if they have a soar.
Avatar f tn Normal emptying of half on the test is 90 mn or less, mine came back at 267 mn. I am not diabetic, I don't know why I have this. I have not thrown up but I spend days where I am retching and gagging. I get extremely bloated and nauseated daily. Going to Mayo Clinic May 18th since I live in Minnesota. I am scared of ending up having to be on feeding tubes. :( Does anyone have this? Is it progressive?
Avatar n tn Hi I'm a 40 year old who has just been diagnosed this year with idiopathic gastroparesis, after 5 years of gradually worsening GERD. In Feb. this year I had a nissan fundalplication for the GERD. After that I had a bloating problem. The doctors finally diagnosed gastroparesis after several stomach emptying studies. The last one showed that after 4 hours I still had 42% of the meal in my stomach. I have tried propulsid, but it causes me to have too many arrhythmias.
Avatar n tn Anyway, as you probably know, gastroparesis is quite common with diabetes, especially type 1. If you haven't already done so, just type in diabetic gastroparesis and you will come up with thousands of articles. But if your blood sugar levels have been well controlled I don't know how likely it would be that you would have it. Both the nausea and bloating are prominent symptoms of gastroparesis. The feeling hungry isn't, but that could be due to something else.
Avatar n tn I think I read that it was supposed to be considered a good choice for people with diabetic gastroparesis in particular (not sure why). Good luck--hope the botox keeps working for her.
1238753 tn?1271179783 A total of 11 months of doctors and testing revealed a big, fat NOTHING gastrologically speaking. Then I spotted the word Gastroparesis somewhere around here on Saturday, and was prompted by the prefix [gastro] to investigate further 'cause you never know. I found a nice, neat list of my stomach symptoms listed under that very same word on a site called GIcare.com They also had a diet plan posted here: http://www.gicare.com/diets/Gastroparesis.aspx in case anyone else is interested.
Avatar n tn The doctor in question is a Gastroenterologist and I started seeing him due to stomach problems. I have been told that I have Gastritis, Peptic Ulcer, Gastroparesis (I am also diabetic).....but never a true diagnosis as of yet. These problems have been occurring off and on for the past 4 years. I have had 2 endoscopies, a colonoscopy, MRI's, CAT scans and they have not found anything.
Avatar f tn The yahoo group - gastroparesis is very useful and you will find a range of foods, diets and techniques. Any food which is low in fibre and easily digested is really useful. English muffins, pancakes, white bread, sausage, mince, mashed potato, creamed corn, juice and staminade may be helpful. I can take some solids, depending on the kind of day i am having.
Avatar n tn I have Gastroparesis. I had a Empting Study done. Takes a long time for your food to go through you. I had an x-ray and the doctor showed me all the waste that was in my stomach. You have to make sure you go to the bathroom or the food will back up and then you will through up. My doctor said I will always have it. I'm a diabetic and diabetics are pro to get it.
Avatar n tn Has anyone heard of developing gastroparesis after gallbladder surgery? I had my gallbladder out (no stones) poor function in June 07, about a month later I know cannot eat food and have dx of gastroparesis from GES test. Anyone with this condition-how it could develop?
Avatar n tn I have been sick for over a year, with nausea 1 year 5 months to be exact. While trying to find out the cause of the nausea many other things started happening i.e. dizzy/lightheaded spells. When the GI Dr. finally diagnosed with IBS they performed and ERCP with manomerty to open up the valves in the liver and pancreatic ducts, however this did not relieve the nausea, it did however help with some of the abdominal pain. Now the Dr.
1490734 tn?1288371641 Would you ever participate in a research study for diabetic gastroparesis? What are your thoughts? Why would or wouldn't you participate? I'm doing some research on adults with Type 1 diabetes for a potential new drug that may help with this condition. I appreciate your feedback!
Avatar f tn I have not yet been diagnosed officially but I was the one who prediagnosed myself with gastroparesis. Upon waking from the endoscopy I was asked when I last ate as there was still food in my stomach. I had last eaten at 5 pm the day before. 16 hours later and food was still in my stomach. At that moment I told the physician I had suspected gastroparesis and he acknowledged that it was most likely my problem.
Avatar n tn I too have gastroparesis and am not a diabetic. I also have no known cause for it, which is becoming more and more common for young people. Gastroparesis can come in several degrees of severity. I don't know how bad yours is, but mine is helped tremendously by a steady prescription of prilosec and an occassional pepto-bismo dose. I also eat at constant intervals. Every time my stomach starts to burn (which is on regular hourly intervals), I try to eat something small.
Avatar f tn I'm was newly diagnosed with gastroparesis. I am a diabetic type 'll. I also have stage 3 kidney disease. Up until recently I have had my diabetics in check. I can't get into Mayo until March but will make an appointment with a local GI Dr. What I am wondering is if anyone out there has heard of exposure to mold over a long period can cause this disease or symptoms like this?
Avatar n tn I have also previously been diagnosed with gastroparesis; gastritis; IBS and a small hiatal hernia.
Avatar f tn Sometimes I loose so much water when I vomit and not much food. Other times it is reverse I loose chewed up food only. I am not a diabetic. Any ideas? My Doctor is a Gastroenterologist but I think I need to seek someone who really specializes in this area of Gastroparesis.
Avatar m tn I have gastroparesis too, but I have non-diabetic gastroparesis so it is a little different for me. Is he on any medications to manage the gastroparesis (reglan, domperidone, erithromycin, etc.)? Is he eating a low-fiber, low-fat diet and eating multiple small meals every day? Is the problem that he can't get enough calories in because of nausea/vomitting or that he seems to be getting enough calories but he is still losing weight?
Avatar n tn We are told it has something to do with when he eats and the food sits in his stomach a hormone or something chemical stimulates the pancreas to shoot EXCESSIVE insulin. Our gastros can't figure it out and our endocrinologists can't either? We are in Miami, Florida. He is basically going into hypoglycemic comas and the glucagon does not work anymore. I am at my wits end. Someone out there please help....Thank you.
Avatar n tn Hi. I'm a 34 y/o Type I diabetic since age 5. 14 yrs. ago I got Gastroparesis (paralysis of the stomach caused often from neuropathy) which has the main symptoms of nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, early fullness or ianability to eat. i've spent the last 12 yrs. of my life in and out of the hospital every 3 -6 weeks for 4 -10 days at a time. It's been awful. 6 mos.
Avatar n tn Does anyone on this board have gastroparesis? If so, what are your symptoms and what were your gastric emptying scan results (mild, moderate, severe/percentage emptied after two hours)? Also, do you have any other condition that it is considered part of/sometimes seen with, such as diabetes, scleraderma, multiple sclerosis, etc.? Anyone that has gastroparesis dxd with other autonomic dysfunction? Also, what kind of diet are you on and does it help alleviate symptoms? Thanks.
Avatar n tn I have been a diabetic since age 6 and am now 30. I am so nauseated all the time, I have to force even toast down to keep it from coming right back up. I have bad stomach pains too. My blood sugars are under control. I've tried nexium and other pills, nothing helps, not even reglan or phenergan. Does anyone have any other suggestions?
Avatar n tn i am also NOT diabetic. Im now being fed via a peg - tube, as my stomach can't tollerate any food what soever. And i can tell you this, im very sorry, it only gets worse, much worse. I dont think i have long to live now, surely the human body can only take so much. But at least the suffering, (you know what i mean) will end.
