GASTRO PARESIS and subsequent acid buildup will manifest following conditions:-->>
Constipation(1), sensitive stomach(2) (where intake of spicy food especially liquid curries, tea coffee causes further anxiety), (3)Functional dyspepsia (feeling of fullness even with small meals). (4) also you cannot eat heavy meals at this stage. (5) depletion of alkaline reserves causes further indigestion and result in delayed digestion & Acidosis. (6) Acid buildup causes thinning of stomach lining/ mucosa which is symptom of leaky gut nd causes undigested food and acid released for digestion to go directly into blood thus causing contamination of blood and subsequent acidosis.
Delayed emptying causes acid buildup resulting in nausea, dizziness, pain in abdomen, severe weight loss and indigestion. Also it causes Acid reflux in some people if the valve at end of esophagus (neck) does not close properly.
THERE are 3 line of treatment that I came across and I will discuss all of these:-
The one and most practiced which is also a faulty line of treatment is generic program that included PPI class of drugs (e.g. NEXIUM, ranitidine, famotidine, omeprazole, RAZO etc)/Motility class of drugs (e.g. REGLAN, Domperidone, Erythromycin) along with antacids to manage the issue. Please know that PPI class of drugs is used for SUPPRESSING ACID While PRO KINETIC Drugs are used to push the digested food through stomach (Motility) for EVERY MEAL you take. So long, that you continue to suppress acids using PPI, delayed emptying will continue to persist. Read DISCUSSION section of article here: “ http://gut.bmj.com/content/42/2/243.full “
Extract from From above url/link:
This study has shown that therapeutic doses of ranitidine, famotidine, and omeprazole, which suppress gastric acid secretion, affect both gastric motility and gastric emptying. All significantly delayed gastric emptying despite an increase in postprandial antral contractility as assessed using antral manometry, electrogastrography, and dynamic antral scintigraphy.
from above extract,When it is clearly established that PPI class of drugs cause and enhance further delayed emptying (Dysmotility) then why are these prescribed??
This line of treatment does not cure the problem but you just manage it on every day basis just like diabetes. As per Medical fraternity GASTRO PARESIS is non curable so they come out with line of treatment that eventually takes you to either G Tube or Feeding tube or some type of surgeries as in long run because of side effects of PPI/Kinetic drugs the stomach slows down to such an extent that nothing can help it move further.
Being former gastro paresis and cured patient I know, that mechanism used by medical fraternity is faulty. I myself from 86 KG went on to become skinny and skeletal losing around 18 kgs because of gastro paresis and subsequent acid buildup causing acidosis; am now cured and back to being healthy and strong again just because I chose to follow different path which I will discuss later.
Thanks for reading
