Default O thats why !!

ben awile, but now I am starting to understand all my frustrations... Eveyone here was getting on me, for whining " , Well , I found out FINALLY <> that I have gastroparesis, my dr. said their is NO way, that people loose toes and more before they get it , well he did the test to prove me wrong, and sure enough ! This is WHY my stomach looks like im 8 mths preggo half the time, and I cant keep my sugar under control !! before this test , my dr tested my urine, *( I had asked to see if I had a kidney infection, well he said my pee was 100 un of sugar ... I didn't know how . I don't eat sugar, and try to stay away from all carbs, so anyway now I know I have this stomach slow digesting problem, they started me on reglan, The 1st day I went BM naturally, that's been a long time .... and so I knew something was helping . with this medicine. I only take it if I eat , I still have pain in my feet, and blurry vision, sugars BG is still high, Its been a week, I think I have to just go at this slow and steady, and be glad I have something helping, I do have more energy, and I am walking around more, and soon to be walking blocks.... *( hopefully today ! ) ANYWAY just wanted to throw in a update, let you all know I am still fighting the good fight .... loves from s.c. ~~~

You can explore Dr. Richard Bernstein's chapter on Gastroparesis easily online:
Dr. Bernstein's Diabetes Solution. A Complete Guide to Achieving Normal Blood Sugars. Official Web Site

Keep reading past the original post to get to about 11 short articles on the topic. I think it will help you get a handle on this condition.
