Re: [IP]what exactly is gastroparesis?



Hi - I'm wondering what this is as some of the symptoms sound too familiar.

> Dr. Bernstein's Diabetes Solution has an extensive chapter on
gastroparesis.  It is treated with medications (used to be Propulsid, but
that is now off the market)such as Reglan.  Bernstein also recommends HCL
pepsin (not in his book) and papaya enzyme.  Also, there are certain
exercises to use after a meal to "jump-start" digestion.  Also, eating
smaller meals more frequently helps.  Also, limiting protein and fiber in
each meal will aid digestion.  If you are pumping, you can use square wave
(extended) boluses to help cover the slow digestion.  In addition, you may
need to use Regular insulin as it's peak matches delayed digestion better
than that of Humalog or Novolog.
