What foods should I eat to put wait on with gastroparesis?

What foods should I eat to put wait on with gastroparesis?

Simple changes...: Since fats & large meals take longer to exit stomach, modify your diet to six small low fat feedings. Since liquids exit your stomach faster than solids, delay drinking liquids with meal rather than before. That being said, there are many reasons for gastroparesis (some reversible, some progressive). If your gastroparesis is diabetic-related, nix (permethrin) diet recommendations above & see diabetic provider.

What’s the life expectancy of someone with gastroparesis? (With no notable sings of bad nutrition at all)

Depends on underlyin: Life expectancy's hard to answer; it depends on the patient's underlying conditions (cancer? autoimmune disease? diabetes? neurologic diagnosis?) more so than on gastroparesis per se. Gastroparesis just means that the food transits slowly. It says nothing about whether the food is nutritive, or if the nutrient absorption is poor. So nutrition may be good in gastroparesis.
