Tue, Feb 4 10:30am · Gastroparesis Diet – Questions, Suggestions, Tips in Digestive Health

Since onset of type 2 diabetes 3 years ago, my body has undergone a number of changes. I too have diverticulosis, gerda, and just recently gastroparesis. I will be seeing a dietitian very soon and hope to get started on improving my symptoms. I too have been struggling to balance enough fiber, but not too much. I will probably settle somewhere between the recommended daily fiber intake (30 grams per day) and what I can tolerate without causing a bezoar(have already had one).
Glucose wise the new diet seems to be lowering my numbers very well.
All in all it is a daunting prospect going forward. My wife and I love to travel but lately am afraid to get too far from a bathroom as with slow digestion seems to come unpredictable emptying.

Not yet. Waiting to see effects from diet.

Too soon for a1c. My last a1c was over 7. My daily blood sugars were up to between 150 on the low side and almost 300 on the high side. New diet has had little to no processed sugar mostly from carbs. A really good yogurt is Oikos triple 0. No sugar, 6 grams of fiber, high protein and on the list of soft foods.

I was diagnosed with gastroparesis recently. After ruling out other causes such as bacterial, picture of stomach (did have undigested food), I did a stomach emptying test which confirmed gastroparesis. No real treatment except dietary.
Mine seems to be somewhat mild, have never had nausea to the point of vomiting and am actually gaining weight. A good enterologist should be able to help.
