Gastroparesis

Resource Properties

Abstract:

This six-page illustrated handout educates people about gastroparesis, also called delayed gastric emptying, which is a condition where the movement of food from the stomach to the small intestine slows or stops. It explains the role of the stomach's muscles and nerves in the digestive process, lists common causes of gastroparesis, and describes its signs and symptoms. The document discusses tests for gastroparesis such as upper endoscopy, ultrasound, and barium x-ray, as well as treatment to manage symptoms.
