Hi all! I was diagnosed with gastroparesis a few months ago. For those that don’t know of it, it’s a disease that causes delayed stomach emptying. Food can stay in my stomach from 4 to at the longest 15 hours (before I puke it up). Before Huel, I took Reglan 3x a day and erythromycin 3x a day as well as an acid reducer and zofran just to eat chicken and mashed potatoes. I decided to try out Huel, despite it having fat and fiber (which im supposed to restrict). I’ve stopped my medicine (it gives some pretty bad side effects and doesn’t help much) and I’ve been having Huel for breakfast and lunch. So far, I’ve had no adverse affects. Im super excited! Soylent gave me lots of acid, but Huel hasn’t given me any. Im having my gallbladder taken out on the 18th due to having 23% function. It won’t fix the gastroparesis but it will help with the pain and puking bile. I’ll keep this updated on how it’s affecting my GI problems. : ) I love food (sadly haha) so I won’t go full time Huel, and I also hope that one day the gastroparesis will improve enough to be able to eat regularly again. But for now, Huel is helping me be able to manage this disease, and get in calories.
For those of you reading this with GP, remember I’m not a doctor. Please please talk to your doctor before stopping medicines or changing your diet. In my case, I have gastroparesis, gallbladder failure, and EDS, a connective tissue disorder.
