Lpr,non acidic reflux normal manometery and gastroparesis my two doc advised one PPI with domperodine and another PPI and levosulpride which one safe?

Perhaps Levosulpride: Neither drug is approved for use in the U.S. Levosulpride is an antipsychotic drug also used for functional dyspepsia, reflux and gastroparesis. It is effective but can cause side effects including Tardive dyskinesia. Domperodine is restricted in the U.K. to brief use for nausea and vomiting because of QT prolongation and risk of ventricular fibrillation. ...Read more

What do you have?: Since you don't have gastroparesis, please elucidate your symptoms for us so we can be of assistance. The GI tract has only a very limited number of responses so your "gastroparesis symptoms" may be altogether something other than a slow stomach, and may even originate outside the gut. Happy to help if you can provide some more information. ...Read more

This is the gastrocardiac reflex, & is entirely normal ...Read more

Do you have a normal life expectancy if you have a feeding tube for gastroparesis?

Do you have a normal life expectancy if you have a feeding tube for gastroparesis?

Depends on...: The basic answer is if you can get optimal nutrition through the tube. I advise against most enteric formulas as they usually contain GMO-derived corn and soy and dairy from cows given hormones and antibiotics. I advise Liquid Hope, an organic feeding tube formula with vegetables etc. You can also add superfood powders like ORAC Energy Greens and fresh pureed soups. You are still what you eat! ...Read more

In end stage renal: disease, multiple toxins may not be eliminated from the body, and symptoms that are common are a general ill feeling and fatigue, Itching (pruritus) and dry skin, headaches, weight loss without trying and loss of appetite and nausea. Not uncommonly, there can be mental confusion and lack of alertness. Hopefully the dialysis will give some relief. ...Read more
