This month is Gastroparesis month and it is unfortunately, a poorly understood condition affecting hundreds of thousands of individuals each year. Sometimes the symptoms are episodic, but often they are chronic. Essentially there is a prolonged delay of gastric emptying and it results in a myriad of issues that range from GERD (gastro esophageal reflux disease) bloating, nausea, and vomiting to constipation and additional lower GI abnormalities that can all be significant complications.

Gastroparesis is a syndrome that results from delayed emptying of the stomach in the absence of a mechanical obstruction. It can be a very challenging problem with typical symptoms of nausea (93%), early satiety (60-86%), vomiting after meals (68---84%), bloating, and with upper abdominal pain (46-90%). The overall prevalence of gastroparesis is 9.6 per 100,000 men and 38 per 100,000 women.
