Re: Anyone with both GERD and Gastroparesis?

I have GERD and Gastroparesis as well. Actually the two go hand in hand. I Take a medication called Domperidone to help the food move through the stomach faster. I take Prevacid for the GERD. Both have worked very well. It is very important to eat small, fequent meals, especially if you are prone to attacks. Fibre is not your friend!! So remember to stick to a low fibre, low fat, high protein diet. I have also heard that digestive enzymes and probiotics are supposed to help with food absorption and bloating. I have started taking both...too early to tell results, but its worth a try. I am assuming you have had the gastric emptying study which ultimately confirms diagnosis of Gastroparesis? Take care and stay healthy!!
