What are the causes of “dumping”?

Early dumping complaints 

Early dumping complaints (until 30 minutes after meal) occur when the food from your stomach enters your small intestinal in large pieces. This can cause stomach cramps, nausea, diarrhea, vomiting and a bloated feeling. The pieces of food attract a lot of moisture in the small intestine. This fluid is removed from the surrounding blood vessels. This can lead to a drop in blood pressure, palpitations, sweating, dizziness and feeling faint.

Late dumping complaints

Late dumping complaints (1 or 2 hours after meal) are less common than early dumping complaints. Late dumping complaints occurs when carbohydrates are absorbed too quickly. The sudden high amount of carbohydrates can cause your body to produce a large amount of insulin. This large amount of insulin can cause severe complaints such as sweating, tremors and palpitations.
