How to paleo with health issues

Asked on August 14, 2015

So I have been eating paleo a long time. 

I have high insulin with no regard to dietary intake. No matter what I eat, it is high (it's believed to be congenital /genetic). 

I know I can reduce the severity of my  hypoglycemia by eating 20g net carbs or less. But, I still have low blood sugar at any carbohydrate level. Just more low brain blood sugar with higher carbs. (fainting, can't talk, shaking, confusion, dizziness, unable to eat when severely hypoglycemia) 

Problem:

I was just diagnosed with gastroparesis. Basically food exits my stomach to the intestines at a very delayed rate. I'm at the point where I can barely eat most days. 

The "treatment " is a diet consisting of very low fat (5g/meal) and avoiding fiber including veggies. 

Both conditions  are horrible, so there is no way I could pick one diet over the other.

 

How can I make a very low fat, low carb, no fiber diet work? Only eat protein??? That sounds horribly wrong.
