Probiotics & gastroparesis


Hi shoshana. I have slow digestion (not full-blown Gastroparesis), and also Pernicious Anemia and Celiac that affect digestion. Probiotics are very important to keep my digestion stable, and eliminated my lactose intolerance. I take the expensive kind, kept in a refrigerator at the local health food store. I also take DanActives (a yogurt drink) for lows, and one a day with or without lows.

A good probiotic has another benefit. When one takes antibiotics, the probiotics help to protect you from getting C Difficile afterwards, one very nasty bug.

Well as far as I know, with the right amount of probiotics intake, it might be helpful in the management of Gastroparesis symptoms or slows down its effect on your body. :slight_smile:
