6. Gastroparesis

Diabetes increases your risk of gastroparesis. With gastroparesis, also called gastric stasis, the nerves in the stomach stop working properly. This leads to delayed gastric emptying and makes it hard to manage blood glucose levels.

Sometimes, adapting your diet to this condition can help. These are some treatments and medications for gastroparesis. In order to be diagnosed, you may need to do some tests such as a gastric emptying breath test, an upper gastrointestinal endoscopy, gastric emptying scintigraphy, the smartPill, and an upper GI series.

Ask your doctor for information on early warning signs so you can choose a treatment that’s effective for you.
