Is this condition reversible? Can I ever be normal again, but with more care? The answer for diet was very helpful. Thank you!
Eat small, frequent meals. (5 to 6 meals each day) produce fewer symptoms than large meals.
• Liquids are often better tolerated than solids with active symptoms.
Begin with a liquid or pureed diet which may be better tolerated. Liquids can
pass through the stomach more easily and quickly than solids. Try sipping on
liquids throughout the day. Liquid nutritional supplements such as Ensure,
Boost, Boost Glucose Control or Glucerna may help you achieve adequate
calories and protein. Advance your diet to soft foods as symptoms improve.
Remember to chew your foods well.
• Reduce fat intake. Fat naturally slows digestion; however, it is better
tolerated if present in liquid form. Avoid all fried, fat or greasy foods if they
cause active symptoms.
• Reduce fiber intake. Fiber also slows digestion. Avoid all raw fruits and
vegetables and whole grain products.
• Hyperglycemia (high blood sugar). Keep your blood sugar under control as
drastic changes in blood sugar can impair gastric emptying.
However, please also do talk with a doc/pharmacist for more accurate advice, take care, be well!
