what is it?

Gastroparesis is a chronic condition causing the contents of the stomach to empty slower than it should. It is caused by an impairment in muscular and nerve communication. There are multiple reasons behind its cause, including complications with type 1 and 2 diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, complications from surgery, such as bariatric surgery and gastrectomy. Symptoms include feeling very full (quickly), nausea and vomiting, loss of appetite, weight loss, bloating and stomach discomfort and heartburn.
