i was recently dx w/ D gastroparesis. i have been miserably uncomfortable for the past 6 months or so, until it got so bad that it sent me to my gastrointerologist for some help. i have every symptom; nausea, feeling of fullness, lack of appetite, terrible gas, pain in the tummy, and general malaise. i was put on a liquid diet…everything goes through the blender am only able to stomach a few things (avocado, Boost calorie shakes, and some eggs; everything else makes me sick to my stomach just from looking at it)
i already have bad neuropathy in feet, legs hands and arms which comes and goes (my A1cs are excellent (6.2). i am 52yrs old and have had T1 for about 30 yrs. for my tummy my doc put me on an antibiotic as well as a drug (which is not FDA approved but is available in canada) called donperidone. has anyone else out there lived with this, and has anyone began to feel relief from this with change of diet and medication management? i am feeling so frustrated and blue. i weigh less than 100lbs now and i cannot eat my regular high fat/high protein diet (thus the weight loss) anyone have any suggestions or a cheerful word?
SOS; anything suggestions and info is helpful and welcomed.
