I was diagnosed with gastroparesis. I can tell you the smartest thing I did was to visit a dietician.. I told the doctor at my follow-up visit that he should suggest that all patients visit a dietician following the diagnosis. Not only did I lose 10 pounds in 3 weeks but I felt 90% better. I never had to worry about my weight but the bloating and gas was just to much. The condition left me with no energy. I was surprised to find out my health insurance provided coverage with 3 visit subject to specialist co-pay.
My doctor suggested I get yogart and applesauce.. The only problem is I'm not 96 and have teeth. Strange.
Please visit a dietician for guidance. I'm going to make it a points to visit mine every year. Good LuckView Thread
