Gastroparesis An issue of Gastroenterology Clinics of North America Book Review:

This issue will be an informative treatise on gastroparesis, a symptomatic chronic disorder of the stomach characterized by delayed gastric emptying in the absence of mechanical obstruction. Gastroparesis is an increasingly recognized and diagnosed disorder. Treatment can be challenging due to several mechanisms which play a role in causing the symptoms. Symptoms of gastroparesis are variable and include early satiety, nausea, vomiting, bloating, and upper abdominal discomfort. These symptoms can range from mild to severe leading to such complications as malnutrition, functional disability, and multiple hospitalizations. The three most common etiologies are diabetes, post-surgical, and idiopathic (unknown). Treatment consists of dietary manipulation, medical, and surgical therapy. The articles will provide a comprehensive review and in-depth information on gastroparesis. Each chapter will be written by an expert in the area. This issue will give the reader a better appreciation for the breadth of gastroparesis.

Gastroparesis Book Review:

Gastroparesis is a condition in which the stomach empties its content much later than is normal. One of the very common symptoms of gastroparesis is the feeling of being full even after you have taken just a few bites of food. In fact, sometimes after eating a very small amount to food, you may start to have a feeling of nausea and vomiting. You may also experience excessive belching. Heartburn as well as stomach acid rising to the esophagus is also commonly experienced when you are suffering from gastroparesis. You may feel a pain in the upper abdominal region. This isn't very sharp but may be enough to make you restless. As soon as you start suffering from gastroparesis symptoms, you should immediately see a doctor. If you delay, your condition may become severe which can be very dangerous in some cases. This informative book outlines the symptoms, causes and treatment options for this often life-threatening condition.

Gastroparesis Cookbook Book Review:

If you find yourself feeling extremely full after eating only a small amount of food, or feeling nauseated and throwing up after eating, don't brush it off as indigestion or lack of appetite. These could be warning signs of a digestive condition called gastroparesis. Gastroparesis (abbreviated as GP) represents a clinical syndrome characterized by sluggish emptying of solid food (and more rarely, liquid nutrients) from the stomach, which causes persistent digestive symptoms especially nausea and primarily affects young to middle-aged women, but is also known to affect younger children and males. Diagnosis is made based upon a radiographic gastric emptying test. Diabetics and those acquiring gastroparesis for unknown (or, idiopathic) causes represent the two largest groups of gastroparetic patients; however, numerous etiologies (both rare and common) can lead to a gastroparesis syndrome.While difficult to treat, a special gastroparesis diet can help to control symptoms. When you have gastroparesis, the amount of fats and fiber that you eat can greatly affect how intense your symptoms are.The gastroparesis diet is always the first step to treating this condition after diagnosis. The easy-to-digest foods it promotes put less stress on your gastrointestinal system, reducing a range of uncomfortable symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, acid reflux, bloating, and abdominal pain.1Furthermore, the focus on nutrient density helps your body weather bouts of appetite loss that often arise during flare-ups. Without a consistent focus on good nutrition, these episodes could lead to malnutrition and weight loss.2Following a gastroparesis diet may also help you avoid medications and other treatments for the condition that may be associated with side effects.

Gastroparesis Cookbook Book Review:

Gastroparesis isn't one of the most common health conditions around--about 10 men and 40 women out of 100,000 people have it. But it can be life-altering to anyone who has it. The condition happens when a person's stomach muscles don't work properly, or not at all. This makes it take too long for the stomach to empty its contents, leading to delayed digestion and a number of complications and uncomfortable symptoms. Gastroparesis is usually caused by nerve damage; specifically, damage to the vagus nerve. The vagus nerve normally helps the stomach muscles tighten in order to break food up and help move it into the rest of the digestive tract. When the vagus nerve becomes damaged, the muscles won't contract strongly enough to fully digest the food nor move the food into the small intestines. Without good innervation, stomach muscles can get even weaker over time. If left untreated, gastroparesis can lead to a number of complications that can dramatically affect a person's quality of life. Diet and lifestyle modification can be of help as the main goal is to ease your symptoms while making sure you get enough nutrition. In this book, all you need to treat gastroparesis has been compiled especially the eating and lifestyle modification to alleviate you of the symptoms by getting the required nutriton. You'll find: The Basic Explanation about gastroparesis Causes of the gastroparesis you may not know How you feel with gastroparesis How to know you have gastroparesis How to treat the ailment with medication Lifestyle and dietary modification to alleviate symptoms Eating tips for gastroparesis patient Lots of delicious recipes for gastroparesis and lot more...
