Diabetes

In people who have diabetic gastroparesis, controlling blood glucose levels is an important part of their treatment. Increased blood glucose levels have been associated with delays in gastric emptying, and also with increased fullness after meals. In addition, high blood glucose can interfere with the effects of pharmaceutical treatments for the symptoms of gastroparesis. To complicate matters, gastroparesis can also make blood glucose more difficult to control as it becomes harder to predict when foods will be absorbed, and oral diabetes medications may not be absorbed effectively. Finding the appropriate balance for optimal blood glucose is imperative in treating diabetic gastroparesis and may also increase the benefits of other treatment approaches.
