Gastroparesis and a low glycemic index diet
Is it possible to make the low GI diet work when one takes Reglan, a drug that facilitates faster stomach emptying?
The glycemic index diet concept is based on the amount of time the food spends in the stomach before being moved into the small intestine. The longer it takes the food to leave the stomach, the slower the absorption. This results in a lower blood glucose response after meals.
Will I be wasting my time? The GI way of eating sounds so healthy, I'd love to give it a try! Discontinuing the drug is not an option right now.
