Re: [IP] Gastroparesis Scenario?

 IF one truly does suffer with the complication of Gatroparesis; Symlin isn't
advised as Symlin can slow digestion further.

 "Symlin should not be used if patient cannot tell when their blood sugar is
low, have gastroparesis (slow stomach emptying), or are allergic to pramlintide
acetate, metacresol, D-mannitol, acetic acid, or sodium acetate." Quoted from
article authored by Carla Sharetto for Health News -Daily Health Central March
18, 2005

 I asked about Symlin for myself a few years ago when the FDA approved the then
new drug Symlin.
I cannot use Symlin due to Gastroparesis. <sigh>
