Stomach Motility

A recent endoscopy came back with having no stomach contractions, (gastroparesis). Does anybody know any factors that contribute to this??? It has really ruined my digestion, especially fat and protein. The meds havent helped me.

Diabetes, anorexia, bulimia, brain disorders and neurological disorders might be a cause. They may not be able to say with 100% certanity what is causing it with you.

High fiber and high in fat foods tend to stay in the stomach longer and you should use caution when consuming them. Trying to eat the usual 6 small meals a day, 2-3 of those meals should be a protein shake low in fat. This is beacuse liquid meals run through your body quicker. This along with proper medications should help you greatly.

Its safe to say that Atkins is not the way to go with this one.
