      I can't recommend what to consume for your particular case, as I don't have uc or diabetes, but I did have an awful gastroparesis flare over a year ago and went on a liquid diet to calm it down. For me, I couldn't keep any solid foods down and had dropped 25lbs within 6 weeks..they almost sent me to the ER for a feeding tube placement. Thankfully I was able to get plant-based protein shakes down and stabilized my weight enough to avoid the tube placement. I know there are protein shake options for people with diabetes, so maybe you could find one of those to help? I hope you find relief soon!
