Welcome to the team. I'm sorry to hear your sister has GP, but it is so great you're helping her figure out how to live with it. We will do our best to help answer questions, or guide you in a direction to look for answers. Even though GP is relatively common (about 1 in 25 in the US), it's highly misunderstood and ignored by doctors. It's very frustrating, but that is why so many have searched online to find each other and work together.

Does your sister have diabetic gastroparesis or ideopathic? If someone has diabetes one must be conscious of that. I have been unable to eat solid food (or any food at some points) enough that I can give some ideas to help her out. But I don't want to give high simple carb ideas if she's diabetic.

My youngest sister has been diagnosed with this health condition. She does not have a computer and I am researching this and trying to find ways of helping her get the nutrition she needs from liquids. She is not able to tolerate anything in solid form. I will be coming here, if you don't mind...as a mediator for her. Asking her questions when she has them and sharing what you are all doing. My heart goes out to you all. The more I research this, the more I am frustrated by the lack of options and even the attitudes of those who don't deal with it.
