Health Tip: Managing Gastroparesis

By on October 22, 2010

Gastroparesis occurs when there’s nerve and muscle damage that slows the process that empties the stomach.

The National Digestive Diseases Information Clearinghouse suggests how to help manage gastroparesis:

  • By taking medication, including drugs that encourage the stomach muscles to contract.
  • By eating several small meals a day, in place of three big meals.
  • By eliminating foods high in fat and or fiber from your diet. Those ingredients can be tougher to digest.
  • In more severe cases, by sticking to a liquid or pureed diet.
