How it affects diabetes:
Even though gastroparesis affects at most, 75% of people with diabetes, itcan make it can diabetes worse.
My personal experience with GP.
My aunt has had GP for almost four years and it was from a surgery where the doctor completely severed the main vasovagal nerve . She has lost a lot of weight from when she first got it. She recently got a pacemaker. A pacemaker is something that you get in surgery to help your heart if it slows down. Some of the things that my aunt goes through on a daily basis are:
Low energy, short term memory, difficulty breathing, freezing cold all the time, a lot of medication that doesn't work, she can't work, she was put on disability (disability is where you have a very serious medical condition where you can't work so you get a small amount of money each month), can't walk or run very far, bounced around by doctors, had to get her appendix removed, dehydration, and eating and nutrition challenge.
