Question Non-Diabetic Gastroparesis

I was just diagnosed, by the gastric emptying study, with Gastroparesis. All my Drs say they have only seen/heard of this happening in diabetics, but I have been extensively tested for diabetes for the past 3 years. Diabetes would explain alot of my health problems( neuropathy, leg ulcers, and now this). Is it possible to have diabetes even if all your blood tests are coming back normal? Is gastroparesis a condition you can have without diabetes? I go in for a stomach scope Thursday morning.
Any advice would be helpful.
Thanks!
Nancy

Re: Non-Diabetic Gastroparesis

Nancy, years ago I was diagnosed w/slow gastric emptying twice. They could not find a cause and I was not diabetic either. What are your symptoms? Eventualy it went away but now I think I am having a return of some of the symptoms. Do you have symptoms all during the day and night?

Post Re: Non-Diabetic Gastroparesis

I have constant stomach pain, but when I eat or drink after the second bite or sip I get real nauseated and I vomit after every meal.It has been going on for 4 months. The gastric emptying study showed no movement of my food after 90 minutes. I had the scope done today. I have no ulcers or blockages but he did biopsy my stomach lining to have it tested. He told me to eat 6 small meals instead of 3 normal meals. I wish he would have told me how much is a small meal. Is it 6 ounces, 8 ounces? I'm trying small meals but I'm not sure how much I'm supposed to be eating.
