Gastroparesis is a delayed gastric emptying disorder that can cause mild to severe symptoms. This disease interferes with the natural contractions which move food down into the small intestine for digestion. It often results from damage to the vagus nerve that controls that movement. It can also be the result of diabetes and unchecked blood sugar. 

It.can be a very debilitating disease causing a significant impact on the physical, emotional, and financial aspects of life.

Diagnosis must be done through medical testing, since it is often a is understood disease as the symptoms are similar to many other more common
and less damaging diseases.
