Diabetes and Gastroparesis

Gastro paresis is a problem affecting people with both type 1 and type 2 diabetes Mellitus in which the stomach will takes too long time to empty its contents. Diabetes can leads to damage vagus nerve if blood glucose levels are high over a long period of time. The vagus nerve has complete control on movement of food through the digestive tract. If the vagus nerve is damaged or stops working, the muscles of the stomach and intestines do not work properly, and the movement of food is slowed or stopped.

Signs and symptoms of gastro paresis include the following:

  • Heartburn
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting of undigested food
  • Early feeling of fullness when eating
  • Weight loss
  • Abdominal bloating
  • Erratic blood glucose (sugar) levels
  • Lack of appetite
  • Gastro esophageal reflux
  • Spasms of the stomach wall
