How can my eating habits help control gastroparesis symptoms?
Robynne Chutkan, MD, Gastroenterology, answeredChanging your eating habits can help control gastroparesis. Your doctor or dietician may prescribe six small meals daily instead of three large ones and recommend that you avoid late-night eating. With less food entering the stomach each time you eat, the symptoms are often improved. Avoiding fatty foods and high-fiber foods that are more difficult to digest will also improve symptoms.Helpful? 3 people found this helpful.
What is a gynecologist?
Gynecologists are medical doctors who diagnose and treat diseases of the female reproductive system.
Gynecologists perform surgeries, such as removal of the uterus (hysterectomy) and ovaries (oophorectomy) and also can provide routine care, such as Pap smears or breast examinations. Gynecologists may also practice obstetrics (the management of pregnancy). They may further specialize in gynecologic oncology (the care and treatment of women with cancers of the reproductive organs) or reproductive endocrinology (the care and treatment of women and men who have infertility problems).
Gynecologists can be board-certified through the Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology, which is recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties.

What is coronary heart disease?
Piedmont Heart Institute answered
Coronary heart disease, also known as coronary artery disease or simply heart disease, is the narrowing of arteries that carry oxygen-rich blood to the heart. The buildup of plaque over time causes the narrowing, hardening the arteries and constricting blood flow to the heart. Coronary heart disease can cause shortness of breath, chest pains, and heart attack. It is the number one cause of death for both men and women in the United States.
