Diabetic Gastroparesis Information

People with type 1 or type 2 diabetes are at risk of diabetic gastroparesis, a complication that affects the movement of food throughout the digestive system. With this condition, the stomach takes too long to empty its contents, which can lead to symptoms such as:
 
  • Heartburn
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting of undigested food
  • An early feeling of fullness when eating.
  •  
Diabetic gastroparesis is usually a chronic condition. In most cases, treatment does not cure the problem, but helps the person remain as healthy and comfortable as possible. Specific treatment options include:
 
  • Insulin
  • Oral medications
  • Changes in diet and eating times
  • Feeding tubes and intravenous feeding (in severe cases).
  •  
(For more information on this condition, including how your healthcare provider will make a diagnosis, click Diabetic Gastroparesis.)
