What is Diabetic Gastroparesis?
Gastroparesis is a condition in which material remains in the stomach for an overly long period of time, due to partial paralysis of the stomach. In the instance of diabetic gastroparesis, this is due to damage done to the vagus nerve (which controls stomach muscles) by either Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes.
Diabetic gastroparesis can be treated, but there is currently no cure for the condition.
Symptoms of diabetic gastroparesis may occur frequently or occasionally and can vary in intensity. Some symptoms include:
- Acid reflux
- Irregular bowel movements
- Appetite loss
- Weight loss
- Vomiting, particularly of undigested food
- Erratic blood glucose levels
