I don't think my stomach is emptying fast enough. Is there a way to measure the rate of my digestive metabolism?

In brief: Yes

There is a test to measure gastric emptying.
It involves eating a meal which is tagged with radioactive tracer and lying under a camera to determine how long it takes to exit your stomach. This has little to do with metabolism however.
