GI motility
On Nov 23,2016 I was diagnosed with GERD.Following which I was admitted in the hospital and treated with pantocid etc. Subsequently I have ha4d vomiting continuously in the month of December and rapid passage of food from stomach to Small intestine. I have had numerous blood tests,upper GI endoscopy,colonoscopy,ultrasound(abdomen and neck),gastric emptying study,barium fluoroscopy at Asian Institute of Gastro,Hyderabad Findings were Decreased Transit time from stomach to caecum in barium study, and Gastric scintigraphy revealed %emptying 38% in 1hr ,62% in 2ndhr ,95%in 3rd hr. I was taking thyroid medicine from september(TSH-5.63 at that time clinically diagnosed) and was asked to stop that time I was diagnosed with increased GI motility and told that it would take time to improve.A month has passed and I have noticed no improvement. Can Octreotide injection help me to decrease motility?

Hi..... Eat smaller, more-frequent meals. If you experience frequent indigestion, try eating several small meals instead of three large ones whenever you can.... Avoid irritating foods. Avoid foods that irritate your stomach, especially those that are spicy, acidic, fried or fatty.... .Avoid alcohol. Alcohol can irritate the mucous lining of your stomach... Adding fiber to your diet increases the weight of your stool and speeds its passage through your intestines. Slowly begin to eat more fresh fruits and vegetables each day. Choose whole-grain breads and cereals.
