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.
