Smoothies for Gastroparesis

Gastroparesis, a condition in which food is digested too slowly or not digested at all, can develop into diabetes, digestive surgery, cancer treatment, eating disorders, endocrine or neurological problems or side effects of certain drugs. If you have gastroparesis, your doctor will give you a diet that will not strain your digestive system. Ice sands can play a role in this diet, but they may not be suitable for all patients with gastroparesis or for all stages of recovery. Before drinking ice cream, discuss with your doctor how and when to incorporate it into your diet.
