Welcome to the team Connie. It seems that your GP is manageable by making changes to your diet - I hope it stays on the more manageable end. When you do end up with issues try drinking things like ensure and always take a multi-vitamin. That will help you get the nutrients you need while you're unable to eat most fruits and veggies.

My name is Connie and I was diagnosed with gastroparesis about a year ago and was in denial for five months because I knew that the body need fiber for the bowel. I saw a dietician at the hospital per doctor's request It helped me see the full picture of how my gastroparesis affected my mastocytic enterocholitis by dumping undigested food into the colin and causing diarrhea. About a month ago my stomach acted up and my electrolytes plummeted and I ended up last weekend in the hospital in serious condition. I am still shaky from the potassium being so low. It is very hard to type and get information down. My mind thinks faster than I can get the words down and I make lots of errors that I have to correct. I know that this too shall pass but I wish it would be NOW! emoticon
