Dumping syndrome Dumping syndrome is actually classified as one of the gastrointestinal diseases. This is also referred as rapid gastric emptying. This involves rapid emptying of partially digested foods because the stomach is not anymore able to hold its contents. Treatment: People with severe signs and symptoms unrelieved by dietary changes, prescribe octreotide (Sandostatin) in rare cases, this is an anti-diarrheal drug, it is taken by injection under your skin (subcutaneously). It will slow the emptying of food into the intestine. But it may produce side effects like nausea, vomiting and stomach upset. Surgery Doctors use a number of surgical procedures to treat difficult cases of dumping syndrome that are resistant to more conservative approaches. Most of these operations are reconstructive techniques, such as reconstructing the pylorus, or they're intended to reverse gastric bypass surgery.
