Re: [IP] Gastic emptying timed test



Sounds easy to do. What are the conclusions. How does it change your
lifestyle. Can you know with good timing when you should take more insulin.
For me I just measure the BS after 1-4 hours then decide to take more
insulin.
Thanks
Richard

I had a gastric emptying test done a few times to test for gastroparesis
(sp?) It involved eating a radioactive egg salad sandwish and having a
machine monitor the progress of the sandwich through the stomach by lying
still while the machine measured the radioactive output.
