Diet and Lifestyle Tips for People with Type 2 Diabetic Gastroparesis

Making dietary and lifestyle changes is an important part of managing type 2 diabetic gastroparesis.

Eat small, frequent meals and snacks throughout the day. Avoid large meals.

 Choose low-fat and easy-to-digest foods.

Limit high-fiber foods, as they can slow digestion.

Avoid spicy foods, as they can irritate the stomach.

Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of fluids throughout the day, including water, clear juices, and decaffeinated tea or coffee. Limit alcoholic beverages.

 Quit smoking if you smoke. Smoking can worsen gastroparesis symptoms.
