A Gastroparesis Patient’s Journey To Recovery

Registered Dietitian Beth Rosen is joined by one of her patients, Addison, who shares her unique experience with gastroparesis, which was spurred by an eating disorder. Gastroparesis is a serious condition that affects the normal spontaneous movement of the muscles (motility) in the stomach. Beth emphasizes that not everyone with gastroparesis has an eating disorder, but in Addison’s case, her eating disorder contributed to the motility issues and symptoms often associated with gastroparesis. Addison explains how her condition evolved over her childhood and how, with Beth's guidance and care, she was able to overcome her fear of eating, and today has a much healthier relationship with food.
