As part of our ongoing commitment to provide education about conditions and diseases that affect your well-being, we are pleased to offer Chiropractic patients near College Park some suggestions that focus on managing delayed gastric emptying, or Gastroparesis.
Since August is National Gastroparesis Awareness month, please review the following tips that can help you prevent or better manage this disorder.
Eliminating or avoiding particular types of food that are difficult to digest is critical for preventing or managing this condition.
Dietary recommendations include:
If you are going to eat a heavier meal with some of the foods listed here, try not to overdo it.
Do your best to avoid these foods for several days afterward and eat lesser portions.
If you know of an upcoming party or big meal in advance, such as Thanksgiving, be sure to give your stomach a good rest a few days preceding the event.
Finally, pay attention to what your body is telling you. If you notice your stomach is staying full longer than anticipated, take a walk and avoid eating anything solid for the next meal.
Have a bland soup, yogurt, and perhaps some saltines.
