I'm sorry it took me so long to get back to you Aliza. I have been able to control mine with diet. I gave up dense meats about 18 mos ago and of course I eat no raw veggies. I can eat some cooked veggies but I try to not over do it, fish and some ground beef. Bananas don't bother me and cooked apples. I haven't taken reglan for quite awhile. I eat low fat high protein bars. You should be able to drink V8 and other drinks to get your veggies. I have a problem with them but I have other stomach issues too. For me staying away from the dense meats has helped the most.
 
There are different causes of gastroparesis, diabetes, which i do not have, nerve damage from prior surgeries, which may be the cause of mine and bacterial infection. I had surgery for reflux which may have damaged the nerves.
 
Did you do the test to see how long it took to digest food???
 
luv and hugs

thank you so much for your reply

i don't eat red meat, since im a vegetarian, and my doctor didn't really tell me anything, other then to take the reglan.

he didn't know why i have it, but i also have gerd, so maybe it has something to do with that. i guess you just get it out of know where, since i didn't have it last year, during my regular endoscopy.

i didn't do the test.

all i had was an endoscopy last week, since i haven't felt hungry for about a month. the doctor said i had gastroparesis and my stomach had paralysis and was sluggish as a result. he also said it was inflamed, but that was it.
