My question is for anyone that had been lucky enough to reverse the symptoms of gastroparesis.
Up until a few months ago I had had gastroparesis for years. I didn’t realise how bad it was (I just thought I had a real bad appetite) until 2 years ago I was sick and I brought up a meal from over 12 hours ago. My blood sugars have never been stable anyway but when I told all the symptoms to my Endo, he dx this condition. To cut a long story short I was put on the pump last July due the the delayed gastric emptying and the very unstable blood sugars and hey presto - around Xmas I realised that I could eat a lot more than I used to. (my A1C went form 13 to 8 at last count). The only problem is, I am now finding that I am constantly hungary so I am starting to worry about nibbling too much and putting weight on. I was told that improving my blood sugars would help the gastroparesis (I’m sure I sound like your Endos here but I promise you it has worked) but I am constantly hungry. Has this happened to anyone else? I’m thinking that I actually had it for longer than I think and I just don’t remember ever having this kind of appetite.
PS before anyone asks - if I were eating for 2 now I will be rich beyond my wildest dreams!
