Symptom of Diabetes: Gastroparesis

Stomach trouble is one of the symptoms of persistent high blood sugar
or diabetes. I have written in my previous article that one of the
symptoms of persistent and uncontrolled high blood sugar is nerve
damage, a condition known as neuropathy. Therefore, diabetes or high
blood sugar can also damages the nerve that helps stomach to empty
and transport food smoothly through the digestive tract.

This inability of the stomach to empty food quickly enough as a result
of persistent high blood sugar can lead to many diabetes
complications. This inability of the stomach to process and empty food
swiftly is a condition known as gastroparesis.

3 SYMPTOMS OF GASTROPARESIS

1. This could cause unpleasant abdominal
problems like diarrhea,
constipation, or incontinence.

2. It may also lead to difficulty in eating or swallowing.

3. Gastroparesis can make it uneasy to control your high blood sugar
or diabetes.

BOTTOM LINE

One of the consequences of uncontrolled diabetes is poor digestive
system as a result of nerve damage. Try to control your blood sugar as
much as you can to prevent, control, manage and reverse gastroparesis.
