"It is almost always secondary to another condition (usually poorly controlled diabetes)."As a medfag, the most annoying thing about the gastroparesis claims it that they are bullshit. I have never seen a true case of idiopathic gastroparesis. It is almost always secondary to another condition (usually poorly controlled diabetes). And anybody I do see who claims it is a young woman. Yeah, yeah, I've heard the claims that women's stomachs move slower, progesterone bullshit, but I've never met a 65 year old woman claiming GP or a 45 year old man. People can have post infectious GP, but it pretty much always resolves with little intervention. So that's no fun for munchies. I know at least one GI attending who doesn't even believe idiopathic GP exists, and I tend to agree with him. I wish for once someone would claim something new and exciting. This GP/EDS/MCAS/CCI shit is boring!
Bingo! Even then it's uncommon... And comes after a fuck ton of other complications. Guy I know had to travel miles because only one doctor in the entire country here knew a thing about GP! But all these young girls definitely have GP and are dancing the walls at the thought of TPN.
That's what I don't get. Why do doctors (I know it's not just the states but I'll say usa) in the usa give them things such as TPN when it's a last resort. It's a serious, fucking serious thing... And it's so obvious that none of these idiots have GP... I always assumed it was because of the fact you basically pay your way there when it comes to health care. Surely that many doctors aren't believing this shit?
Someone recently posted pics of all the food someone claiming GP has had lately. You eat nothing, and if you do have a nibble you'll pay for it in a huge way... I just can't wrap my head around why they're entertained medically unless some Dr is raking in money, that at least I'd understand.
