If you work in eating disorder treatment, you know that gastroparesis is a common and unpleasant consequence of engaging in eating disorder behaviors.
I’m guessing many of your clients are experiencing symptoms of gastroparesis, like early satiety, pain or discomfort in the upper abdomen, reflux, nausea and unintentional vomiting associated with eating, etc.
In eating disorder recovery, the best treatment for gastroparesis is normalization of eating patterns, but there are recommendations we can make to help our clients feel a little more comfortable while they are on their journey to normalizing their eating patterns.
This educational handout highlights “do” recommendations vs. “don’t” recommendations, it’s written from a non-diet and weight-inclusive perspective, and it’s ready to print or email to your clients right away.
