Gastroparesis. Diagnosed via endoscopy Liquid diet per G.I . Getting Sent 2 Specialist. How do I ensure getting my nutrients to be as healthy as can?
Symptom control: While endoscopy is part of the work up for gastroparesis it is not a diagnostic test. A gastric emptying study will be needed somewhere along the way.
