Hi all,
So this is not (directly) about Colitis, but I can't help but ask. Has anyone else been diagnosed with gastric emptying (also appropriately called "dumping")? Apparently my stomach is speedy and moves food through to my small intestine very quickly. I am on medicine to help it, but I haven't noticed much difference (it is hard to tell what is colitis and what is gastric emptying--they have similar symptoms--i.e. many many BMs throughout the day). If anyone has experience with this, I would love any and all suggestions/ stories.
Thanks
