I have had occasional, but now worsening, symptoms of gastroparesis. I've vomited up my dinner the next morning a few times over the past few years. This happened again a few weeks ago (this time with diarrhea), and ever since then I've had very little hunger and a sensation of fullness after eating only a small amount of food. I've also had a lot of constipation and abdominal bloating/distention. I'm keeping it in check right now with small meals, many of which have been liquid or practically pureed. Animal fat seems to be a no-go. I've suffered from GERD and been on prilosec for about 15 years. I was diagnosed with T2 three and a half years ago (I'm now 35), and I've always maintained good control with my A1Cs around 6.0-6.3 with diet, exercise, and metformin.
My question is: I have always assumed that gastroparesis is a complication that resulted from long-term diabetes, and that it is more common in T1. With my history, is it possible that something else is causing my gastro problems? I don't want my doc to write this off as diabetic gastroparesis if something else is going on here. I'm seeing my doc in about three weeks, at my next scheduled follow-up appt for my labs. Thank you!
