Treatments for GP

Visit the following pages on my site  for more information on the research I have done on the treatment of GP:

Below is a popular list of treatments mentioned in various sources for Gastroparesis.  Always seek professional medical advice about any treatment or change in diet if you have GP.

Prescriptions: Erythromycin although an antibiotic, it also helps digestion (didn’t work for my loved one though), Domperidone and Antiemetics – to avoid vomiting.

Diet changes:  Smaller meals, liquid meals, low-fat diet, low-fiber diet

Other Medical Procedures:

  • Endoscopic injections – for bezoars
  • Feeding tube (jejunostomy tube) – a tube directly into the intestine bypassing the stomach; severe cases only
  • Intravenous feeding (Parenteral nutrition) – severe cases only; often for temporary relief in hospitalization
