4 days ago · New member-have you had problems with high bs after high fat meal? in Diabetes/Endocrine System

The gastro dr said I do not have gastroparesis. I walk a mile or so most days, when the blood sugars are high, I walk 1-2 miles or so to bring them down.

I am so sorry you are having to deal with this. I am type 1 for 53 years. The stomach emptying test was done. The endo dr said it was gastroparesis. The gastro dr said it was not, but I did have an unusual test result. I was slow to empty in the first two stages but normal in the last two. His comment to me was that I have an unhappy stomach. That was it. I have moved and will start over with doctors and see what they say. I am just sticking to my low fat diet.

Thank you for your responses. I have had diabetes for over 50 years. The problem has been going on for about 8-10 years. The doctor says I have gastroparesis. He says to keep my fat grams about 5 per meal. The gastro doctor says no, it is not. There have been no changes in meds. Stress is not the problem either. I have worked with the diabetes educator for a long time. The educator knows that fats take longer to work through everyone's body. They just don't know why it is affecting my blood sugars now. There are others who are dealing with this. Joslin diabetes center has done studies on it. They just said, yes this is happening. Don't eat fat. Heavy exercise is the only thing known now to help bring the blood sugars down (I have walked 2 miles in 30 minutes to start to bring them down at times) I can't always do this. I am just trying to find someone who may have learned something new about it.

After eating a high fiber or high fat meal, my bs spikes to 300-500 for 4-6 hours no matter how much insulin I take. I am now eliminating fat & fiber from meals but every once in a while, something will surprise me.
