Gastroparesis Diet

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.

Spread ‪#‎awareness‬ to help ‪#‎CureGP‬. ‪#‎DTP‬ (Digestive Tract Paralysis) affects 1 in 25 ‪#‎Americans‬ ‪#‎Gastroparesis‬ is under this umbrella.
