Pediatric Gastroparesis

Key points about gastroparesis

  • Gastroparesis is a stomach disorder. It happens when your stomach takes too long to empty out food.
  • The food can also harden into solid masses (bezoars). They may upset your stomach or create a blockage in your stomach.
  • In most cases, gastroparesis is a long-term (chronic) condition.
  • You are more likely to have it if you have type 1 or type 2 diabetes.
  • Symptoms may include upset stomach or nausea, vomiting, losing weight, feeling full too soon when eating, belly or abdominal pain or bloating, and heartburn.
  • Your care plan may include taking medicines, changing your diet, having surgery, and feeding by IV (intravenously).
  • Treatment will not cure gastroparesis, but it can help you manage the disease.
