5 Home Remedies for Gastroparesis.
Gastroparesis, also known as delayed gastric emptying, occurs when the stomach takes too long to empty food.
Experts are not yet very clear what leads to gastroparesis. However, damage to the vagus nerve that controls the stomach muscles can cause it.
This kind of damage can be due to several factors, including uncontrolled diabetes, abdominal surgery, radiation therapy, hypothyroidism and several nervous system diseases, such as Parkinson’s or multiple sclerosis
Some common symptoms of gastroparesis are upper abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, heartburn, bloating, low appetite, swollen abdomen, fluctuation in blood sugar levels, feeling full even after eating a very small amount of food, malnutrition and unintended weight loss.
