Gastroparesis - Nausea on Regular Basis Can be a Sign of it

DM - Gastroenterology, MD - General Medicine, MBBS

Gastroparesis - Nausea on Regular Basis Can be a Sign of it

Gastroparesis is a condition when your stomach feels full and heavy even after it has been more than a couple of hours after meal. Generally, it takes maximum 1 & ½ hours for the stomach to feel empty, but if the time taken for it is more, then this is a condition of gastroparesis. It means there is some change in your normal digestion process.

In this circumstance, the food in your stomach doesn’t digest easily and creates a lump. As a result, you have hard time digesting your food. It also means the nerves connected to the stomach are not functioning well. There are a number of reasons for which you can get gastroparesis.

  1. Diabetes is one of the most common causes of making you feel fuller.
  2. Disorders in the nervous system, mainly Parkinson’s disease or cerebral attack can create this problem.
  3. Some medicines, especially antidepressants or anti-inflammatory in nature and certain painkillers can cause this problem.

Gastroparesis shows a number of symptoms:

  1. Occasional vomiting as you feel unnecessarily fuller. When you vomit, it gives out chunks of undigested food
  2. A feeling of nausea
  3. You feel full after you have eaten very little
  4. Bloating and pain in your abdomen
  5. There is alteration in the blood sugar level
  6. You don’t feel like eating due to loss of appetite
  7. You lose considerable weight as you don’t eat much
  8. A possibility of suffering from malnutrition, again due to lack of appetite

How it can be treated?
When you identify the reason for gastroparesis, then treating it becomes easier. If diabetes or nerve disorder is creating the problem, leave it to your doctor to treat. For other causes like lack of appetite, there are some natural ways of treating it.

  1. Have frequent smaller meals. This way you don’t push yourself to eat much and at the same time, the body doesn’t lack nutrition and energy
  2. Avoid fibrous fruits
  3. Avoid high carbohydrate and high fat foods, which takes time to digest
  4. Intake foods which you can swallow, like soups or stew. They are healthy and are also easy to digest

If the problem still persists, consult your doctor who may prescribe some medicines to stimulate the stomach muscles. They generally have no side-effects. There are some medicines which can control your vomiting and nausea. There are some surgical treatments for gastroparesis, where the doctors place a feeding tube in your small intestine. A gastric venting channel is another option, which helps you to get relief from excessive gas formation in your stomach, thus accelerating the process of digestion.

Eat slow, chew food properly, avoid water immediately after meals for at least 45 min. Apple or apple juice is quite good for most people with heartburn. Avoid coffee, chocolate ,oranges, tomato gravy and any deep fried oily food.

Dear sir, I reside in electronic city, bangalore. My mother is 69 years old and has complains of acidity. She also complains thrubbing pain in her knees in the night. I would request a guidance for her treatment.

DNB, MBBS
Orthopedist, Delhi
She would probably have osteoarthritis of knees at her age, the question is how severe. We need x rays of both knees ap and lateral views for the same. Also get vitamin d levels and uric acid levels. Painkiller wise we can' t give her anything strong because of her acidity, we can however give her some medications to improve the lubrication of the joint or some injections into the joint for the same. The above however are only effective if her arthritis is mild to moderate, if it is severe she will need a knee replacement.
