Gastroparesis

 

Type 1 Diabetes is the most commonly known cause for Gastroparesis. Gastroparesis is a disorder also known as delayed gastric emptying, which slows down or altogether stops food from moving from your stomach to your small intestine. This happens despite the fact that there is no physical feature blocking the stomach or intestines. Symptoms of Gastroparesis may include:

  • Feeling full shortly after starting a meal

  • Feeling full long after eating a meal

  • Nausea

  • Vomiting

The treatment for Gastroparesis depends on the cause, the severity of symptoms, and the complications endured. Typically, when diabetes is the cause of Gastroparesis, your doctor will help you to better control blood sugars.
