It’s Day 3 of #GastroparesisAwarenessMonth! Today’s topic covers the Gastroparesis Diet. The graphic below shows 3 general stages for a #GastroparesisDiet: Liquids, Limited, and Maintenance. It’s important to understand that it’s not a black and white picture of what can and cannot be eaten. There’s a wide spectrum and each person fluctuates on this scale depending on the severity of the condition and if they are in a Flare or not. Many people need the assistance of feeding tubes or TPN because even Liquids are not tolerated.
If you are struggling with symptoms, I highly encourage you see a medical professional in a #DigestiveDisorders specialty. I know it can take a while to get in to see someone so I have provided a link to a site that gives examples of a Gastroparesis Diet in different stages.http://www.arizonadigestivehealth.com/gastroparesis-diet/
