Gastroparesis And Liquid Diet

Gastroparesis And Liquid Diet

I have been having major problems with my stomach since being diagnosed with Lupus. Right now the main problem is the ulcers and gastroparesis. The stomach dr put me on a liquid diet and I'm still throwing up. Does anyone have any liquid nutrition that has helped them or anyone have any recommendations for liquid diet?

Diet & Nutrition

I have lupus and five other autoimmune disease. I’m on a high dose of prednisone which has caused me to gain significant weight. However, over the last few years I haven’t gained any more weight. I just am having a hard time loosing it.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how I could loose weight. I’ve cut carbs and most sugar out of my diet. Veggies are hard to eat because I have Ulcerative Colitis.

Any diet suggestions? Thank you fellow Lupies!!!

Nutrition Helps.?

Nutrition Helps.?

My mother has lupus and i have seen some early signs in myself. I want to try and overcome it without being diognosed because they wont officially diagnos us until we each have one more vital sign, which means no medical treatment. My mom is on an anti inflamitory diet and i was wondering if i should do the same for a while and then work back up to my normal diet (which is nutrionally sound)

A MyLupusTeam Member said:

Try an low histamine diet worth the restrictions. It has worked so well for me.

Thanks,
