Often as frustrating for doctors as it is for patients, gastroparesis can take a major toll on a person's life. The disorder, a poorly understood complication of diabetes, is defined as delayed gastric emptying. Its symptoms range from occasional and annoying nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and constipation, to total stomach paralysis which results in the need for intravenous feeding and hydration.
But there's good news: A non-profit organization has been established to provide "group support and an information exchange to patients, doctors, and families of people that have been through the lonely struggle of gastroparesis." The Gastroparesis Communication Network, based in Montana, produces a newsletter called Gastro Gossip offering positive information that may be difficult to find elsewhere.
If you would like to get on a mailing list to exchange information with other diabetics who have gastroparesis, call the Gastroparesis Communication Network at (800) 458-3752, or write P.O. Box 222, Deer Lodge, MT 59722.
