Diabetic Gastroparesis (Digestive disorder)

Stomach feeling Full and Digestion slows down - Don't Ignore

Diabetic patients are at a higher risk of developing gastroparesis, a digestive disorder which can cause many complications, affecting the
quality of life.

Symptoms

  • Abdominal bloating
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Loss of appetite
  • Acid reflux
  • Feeling of fullness while eating

Diabetes and Gastroparesis

Over a period of time constant high blood sugar levels damage the nervous system and also the vagus nerve. This nerve signals the
stomach muscles to contract, thus pushing food into small intestine. The damage to vagus nerve results in delayed emptying of food from stomach to intestine thus disrupting digestion process leading to Gastroparesis.

Complications

  • Problem in managing blood sugar
  • Malnutrition
  • Formation of life-threatening undigested solid food mass, called
  • bezoars in intestine
  • Dehydration
  • Bacterial infections
