Well, this afternoon was my appointment with my stomach doctor. I have diabetic enteropathy, also known as stomach paralysis. This is also severe nerve damage in my stomach from my diabetes. My stomach empties too slowly, or at times, does not empty at all. This problem is causing all of my symptoms: nausea, stomach cramps, feeling of fullness(even when I have only eaten a small amount , or no food), bloating, aweful taste in my mouth, blood sugars way out of control, vomiting, tiredness. It is at the point, where my body cannot tolerate solid food anymore. From now on, everything I take in has to be liquid. Thinned down pureed foods, and liquids. I have to keep a close watch on my blood sugars, and my weight. I constantly have either diaherria, or constipation, and recently my stools have been green. This problem is affecting my liver, my doctor wants to see me back in one month. My appointment is on August 5th. Keep me in your prayers please, you are in mine. I love you all.
