When Diabetes Causes Stomach Problems
Diet Changes to Make
If you have diabetes, one of the best ways to help control the symptoms of gastroparesis is to vary when and how you eat.
For instance, instead of three meals a day, you can eat six small meals. You'll have less food in your stomach, so you won't feel as full. It will be easier for the food to leave your stomach, too.
Also, pay attention to the texture of food. Liquids and things that are easy to digest are a good idea. For example, choose applesauce instead of whole apples.
Avoid foods that are high in fat, which can slow down digestion. Also watch out for fiber, which is hard to digest.
