I am 21 years old and I was diagnosed with Gastroparesis about 9 months ago after being sick for about a year. I was so sick that I considered leaving my university because I was in a lot of pain, continually sick and could not keep up with the work. I had a doctor who misdiagnosed me, refused to do an endoscopy and put me on a high fiber diet which resulted in me becoming sicker and since have gotten a better doctor. I have drastically changed my diet and continue to not be able to eat a lot of food, less than 1200 calories a day. In the past year I have been drastically gaining weight, as of today I have gained 70 pounds, even though I am eating very little and mostly soft or liquid foods. At this point I am obese and several doctors have told me so. I am aware that my body could have gone into starvation mode but I have since changed my diet to be nutrient rich and take several vitamins and I still continue to gain weight. I have had several thyroid tests due to family history and all of them revealed that the levels were normal. I am needing any type of advice or help that I can get. I have started to become very depressed because I feel so hopeless and my doctors continue to not take me seriously on the matter. I am extremely worried that if I continue to weight other parts of my health are being put at risk. Any advice at all would be extremely helpful! Thank you.
