Interstitial Cells of Cajal
Peripheral, autonomic, and cranial nerve disorders that are associated with DIABETES MELLITUS. These conditions usually result from diabetic microvascular injury involving small blood vessels that supply nerves (VASA NERVORUM). Relatively common conditions which may be associated with diabetic neuropathy include third nerve palsy (see OCULOMOTOR NERVE DISEASES); MONONEUROPATHY; mononeuropathy multiplex; diabetic amyotrophy; a painful POLYNEUROPATHY; autonomic neuropathy; and thoracoabdominal neuropathy.

Natural history of diabetic gastroparesis. (1/173)OBJECTIVE: The major aim of this study was to evaluate the prognosis of diabetic gastroparesis. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: Between 1984 and 1989, 86 outpatients with diabetes (66 type 1, 20 type 2; 40 male, 46 female) underwent assessment of solid and liquid gastric emptying and esophageal transit (by scintigraphy), gastrointestinal symptoms (by questionnaire), autonomic nerve function (by cardiovascular reflex tests), and glycemic control (by HbAlc and blood glucose concentrations during gastric emptying measurement). These patients were followed up in 1998. RESULTS: Of the 86 patients, solid gastric emptying (percentage of retention at 100 min) was delayed in 48 (56%) patients and liquid emptying (50% emptying time) was delayed in 24 (28%) patients. At follow-up in 1998, 62 patients were known to be alive, 21 had died, and 3 were lost to follow-up. In the group who had died, duration of diabetes (P = 0.048), score for autonomic neuropathy (P = 0.046), and esophageal transit (P = 0.032) were greater than in those patients who were alive, but there were no differences in gastric emptying between the two groups. Of the 83 patients who could be followed up, 32 of the 45 patients (71%) with delayed solid emptying and 18 of the 24 patients (75%) with delay in liquid emptying were alive. After adjustment for the effects of other factors that showed a relationship with the risk of dying, there was no significant relationship between either gastric emptying or esophageal transit and death. CONCLUSIONS: In this relatively large cohort of outpatients with diabetes, there was no evidence that gastroparesis was associated with a poor prognosis. (+info)
Gastric emptying rate assessment based on the proportion of intra-abdominal radioactivity in the stomach. (2/173)Using scintigraphic techniques, the rate of gastric emptying is calculated by quantifying the absolute radioactivity within a gastric region of interest (intragastric method) with the time of meal completion considered 100% retention. However, this technique has significant limitations arising from subject movement and radionuclide gamma-ray attenuation, which may render curve fitting difficult, particularly in patients with gastroparesis. In an attempt to minimize these limitations, we have expressed the intragastric content as a percentage of the total abdominal radioactivity (abdominal method) and compared these two methods. METHODS: Forty-five subjects in a sitting position consumed a meal consisting of two fried eggs labeled with 99mTc, two slices of toast and 300 mL 5% glucose water (412 kcal). Data were acquired at a rate of one frame every 5 min from the left anterior oblique view. Using the two methods, the intragastric retention ratios at 30, 60, 90, 120 and 240 min and the 50% emptying time (T50) were obtained from both observation and calculation by power exponential fit. R2, representing goodness of fit of the nonlinear curve fitting, was calculated. RESULTS: There were no differences in the calculated values of T50 between the two methods. Quantitative estimates of T50 by extrapolation of a power exponential fit were feasible in 42 of the 45 subjects when the abdominal method was used, compared with only 29 of the 45 subjects when the intragastric method was used. In the 23 subjects with delayed emptying, quantitative estimates of T50 were feasible in 20 subjects when the abdominal method was used, compared with 7 subjects when the intragastric method was used. Using the abdominal method as opposed to the intragastric method also significantly improved R2. The difference between observed values and estimated values of T50 and intragastric retention ratios at 30, 90 and 120 min was smaller using the abdominal method. CONCLUSION: Scintigraphic measurement of gastric emptying calculated using the proportion of the abdominal radioactivity in the stomach offers substantial advantages over conventional methods, particularly in patients with gastroparesis.

Measurement of gastric emptying by standardized real-time ultrasonography in healthy subjects and diabetic patients. (3/173)The aim of this study was to simplify and standardize a reproducible, well-tolerated and clinically applicable method for the assessment of gastric emptying rate by real-time ultrasonography. A total of 33 subjects were examined, including 19 healthy subjects and 14 patients with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus and clinically suspected delayed gastric emptying. Measurements of the gastric antrum were taken in the supine position and in relation to internal landmarks to obtain a standardized cross-sectional image producing the area of a selected slice of the antrum. Diabetic patients were examined on the condition that the fasting blood glucose level was 3.5 to 9.0 mmol/l. Gastric emptying rate was estimated and expressed as the percentage reduction in antral cross-sectional area from 15 to 90 min after the ingestion of a standardized semisolid breakfast meal (300 g rice pudding, 330 kcal). Interobserver and intraobserver measurement errors were assessed, as was the significance of age and sex on gastric emptying. In comparison to healthy subjects, diabetic patients showed significantly wider median values of the 90 min postprandial antral area, but only a mild tendency toward greater dilation of the gastric antrum prior to and 15 min after meal ingestion. The median value of gastric emptying rate in these diabetic patients was estimated at 29%, which was less than half of that in the healthy subjects (63%). Statistically the difference was highly significant. Interpersonal variability of gastric emptying rate and antral areas was large for both groups. Measurements of gastric emptying rate gave highly reproducible results on separate days and from different observers (interobserver systematic measurement error 0.3% and random measurement error 10.9%; intraobserver systematic measurement error 3.6% and random measurement error 9.5%). No difference in gastric emptying rate was found related to age or sex. We conclude that the use of standardized real-time ultrasonography to determine gastric antral cross-sectional area in a single section of the stomach is a valid method for estimating gastric emptying rate.

Evaluation and management of dyspepsia. (4/173)Dyspepsia, often defined as chronic or recurrent discomfort centered in the upper abdomen, can be caused by a variety of conditions. Common etiologies include peptic ulcers and gastroesophageal reflux. Serious causes, such as gastric and pancreatic cancers, are rare but must also be considered. Symptoms of possible causes often overlap, which can make initial diagnosis difficult. In many patients, a definite cause is never established. The initial evaluation of patients with dyspepsia includes a thorough history and physical examination, with special attention given to elements that suggest the presence of serious disease. Endoscopy should be performed promptly in patients who have "alarm symptoms" such as melena or anorexia. Optimal management remains controversial in young patients who do not have alarm symptoms. Although management should be individualized, a cost-effective initial approach is to test for Helicobacter pylori and treat the infection if the test is positive. If the H. pylori test is negative, empiric therapy with a gastric acid suppressant or prokinetic agent is recommended. If symptoms persist or recur after six to eight weeks of empiric therapy, endoscopy should be performed. (+info)
Comparative effects of levosulpiride and cisapride on gastric emptying and symptoms in patients with functional dyspepsia and gastroparesis. (5/173)BACKGROUND: The efficacy of several prokinetic drugs on dyspeptic symptoms and on gastric emptying rates are well-established in patients with functional dyspepsia, but formal studies comparing different prokinetic drugs are lacking. AIM: To compare the effects of chronic oral administration of cisapride and levosulpiride in patients with functional dyspepsia and delayed gastric emptying. METHODS: In a double-blind crossover comparison, the effects of a 4-week administration of levosulpiride (25 mg t.d.s.) and cisapride (10 mg t.d.s.) on the gastric emptying rate and on symptoms were evaluated in 30 dyspeptic patients with functional gastroparesis. At the beginning of the study and after levosulpiride or cisapride treatment, the gastric emptying time of a standard meal was measured by 13C-octanoic acid breath test. Gastrointestinal symptom scores were also evaluated. RESULTS: The efficacy of levosulpiride was similar to that of cisapride in significantly shortening (P < 0.001) the t1/2 of gastric emptying. No significant differences were observed between the two treatments with regards to improvements in total symptom scores. However, levosulpiride was significantly more effective (P < 0.01) than cisapride in improving the impact of symptoms on the patients' every-day activities and in improving individual symptoms such as nausea, vomiting and early postprandial satiety. CONCLUSION: The efficacy of levosulpiride and cisapride in reducing gastric emptying times with no relevant side-effects is similar. The impact of symptoms on patients' everyday activities and the improvement of some symptoms such as nausea, vomiting and early satiety was more evident with levosulpiride than cisapride. (+info)
Effects of fedotozine on gastric emptying and upper gastrointestinal symptoms in diabetic gastroparesis. (6/173)BACKGROUND: Delayed gastric emptying and upper gastrointestinal symptoms occur frequently in patients with diabetes mellitus. AIM: To evaluate the effects of fedotozine on gastric emptying and gastrointestinal symptoms in diabetic gastroparesis. METHODS: Thirty-one diabetic patients (20 type 1, 11 type 2) with gastroparesis were randomized to receive fedotozine (30 mg as the tartrate) or placebo t.d.s. Measurements of gastric emptying (100 g ground beef labelled with 20 MBq 99mTc-sulphur colloid chicken liver and 150 mL 10% dextrose labelled with 10 MBq 113mIn-DTPA) and gastrointestinal symptoms were performed before and after 12-16 days of treatment. Data are the mean +/- s.d. RESULTS: Of the 31 patients enrolled, two were excluded from analysis. Data from the remaining 29 patients (18 type 1, 11 type 2; 22 female, seven male), aged 42.7 +/- 11.1 years (of whom 14 were randomized to fedotozine and 15 to placebo), were analysed. Fedotozine had no effect on either gastric emptying (solid retention at 100 min; fedotozine: baseline, 84 +/- 15%; treatment, 73 +/- 23% vs. placebo: baseline, 83 +/- 10%; treatment, 70 +/- 20%) or liquid 50% emptying time (fedotozine: baseline, 59 +/- 32 min; treatment, 58 +/- 38 min vs. placebo: baseline, 44 +/- 9 min; treatment, 43 +/- 21 min) or gastrointestinal symptoms (fedotozine: baseline, 4.4 +/- 2.9; treatment, 4.1 +/- 3.9 vs. placebo: baseline, 4.9 +/- 4.2; treatment, 4.8 +/- 3.9). CONCLUSIONS: Fedotozine has no effect on gastric emptying in patients with diabetic gastroparesis. (+info)
Remodeling of networks of interstitial cells of Cajal in a murine model of diabetic gastroparesis. (7/173)Patients with long-standing diabetes commonly suffer from gastric neuromuscular dysfunction (gastropathy) causing symptoms ranging from postprandial bloating to recurrent vomiting. Autonomic neuropathy is generally believed to be responsible for diabetic gastropathy and the underlying impairments in gastric emptying (gastroparesis) and receptive relaxation, but the specific mechanisms have not been elucidated. Recently, it has been recognized that interstitial cells of Cajal generate electrical pacemaker activity and mediate motor neurotransmission in the stomach. Loss or defects in interstitial cells could contribute to the development of diabetic gastroparesis. Gastric motility was characterized in spontaneously diabetic NOD/LtJ mice by measuring gastric emptying and by monitoring spontaneous and induced electrical activity in circular smooth muscle cells. Interstitial cells of Cajal were studied by Kit immunofluorescence and transmission electron microscopy. Diabetic mice developed delayed gastric emptying, impaired electrical pacemaking, and reduced motor neurotransmission. Interstitial cells of Cajal were greatly reduced in the distal stomach, and the normally close associations between these cells and enteric nerve terminals were infrequent. Our observations suggest that damage to interstitial cells of Cajal may play a key role in the pathogenesis of diabetic gastropathy. (+info)
Gastroparesis following bone marrow transplantation. (8/173)Patients often develop nausea, vomiting and bloating after bone marrow transplantation (BMT). These symptoms may interfere with nutrition and the ability to take oral medications. Gastroparesis is a recognized cause of these symptoms in non-transplant patients but less is known about patients who undergo BMT. Between January 1996 and March 1997, a total of 151 patients underwent BMT. Eighteen patients (12%) developed persistent symptoms suggestive of gastroparesis (persistent nausea, vomiting or bloating). Scintigraphic gastric emptying studies were performed to assess for gastroparesis. Prokinetic agents were administered at the time of study. The records on these patients were compared with those of all other patients undergoing BMT during the same time period without these symptoms. Nine patients who demonstrated delayed gastric emptying were further evaluated with esophagastroduodenoscopy and biopsy. Biopsy samples were reviewed for evidence of graft-versus-host disease (GVHD). Fourteen of 18 patients demonstrated delayed gastric emptying and most responded to prokinetic agents given at the time of study. Age, conditioning regimen, cytomegalovirus antigenemia and acute GVHD did not appear to be associated with the development of gastroparesis. Allogeneic BMT recipients were at higher risk than autologous BMT patients (26% vs 0%, P < 0.0001). of allogeneic bmt recipients, there was a nonsignificant trend of patients receiving tacrolimus to be less likely to experience gastroparesis than those receiving cyclosporine (27% vs 48%, P = 0.08). For the nine patients undergoing upper endoscopy, GVHD on gastric biopsy was an uncommon finding and was mild when present. Gastroparesis appears to be a common cause of nausea, vomiting and bloating following allogeneic BMT. This may occur less often with tacrolimus than cyclosporine because of the former agent's prokinetic properties. Patients usually respond to prokinetic drugs at the time of scintigraphy. GVHD and CMV infection do not appear to be major contributing factors. (+info)

Gastroparesis Awareness Month Calls for Action in August
What is Gastroparesis? Gastroparesis is a condition characterized by delayed stomach emptying. In a normally functioning stomach, gastric contractions move food material through the gastrointestinal tract. Patients with gastroparesis experience slow or erratic stomach contractions, which halts the digestive process. Common symptoms of gastroparesis include abdominal pain, bloating, reduced appetite and weight loss.. What Causes Gastroparesis?. One of the most common causes of gastroparesis is a damaged vagus nerve, the main nerve that communicates with the digestive tract. Injury to the vagus nerve interrupts impulses that control involuntary muscles in the stomach, gallbladder and intestines which stimulate secretions and contractions.. Gastroparesis can also be caused by uncontrolled diabetes, medications and other nerve disorders.. Common Misconceptions about Gastroparesis. Many people think that gastroparesis is an eating disorder because it is associated with malnutrition and weight loss, ...

Treatment options for patients with severe gastroparesis | Gut
Chronic gastroparesis is a motility dysfunction often associated with severe symptoms, the most common disabling symptoms being nausea and vomiting. The term gastroparesis is a Greek word that means a weakness of movement. In this article, some basic facts about gastroparesis are briefly mentioned before aspects on therapy are discussed.. Gastroparesis is defined as delayed gastric emptying in the absence of an obstruction to outflow from the stomach. Hence, the diagnostic procedure in patients with symptoms suggestive of gastroparesis should include at least gastroscopy, so as to exclude obstructive lesions. Furthermore, a gastric emptying test is required to verify abnormal emptying of the stomach. Although delayed emptying of both liquids and solids occurs in patients with gastroparesis, the delayed emptying of solids is considered the most relevant disturbance. Thus, a test of solid emptying is usually applied. The scintigraphic method is considered to be the gold standard. Reference ...
Gastroparesis: separate entity or just a part of dyspepsia? | Gut
Gastroparesis is defined by the presence of delayed gastric emptying (GE) in the absence of mechanical obstruction. Symptoms that have been attributed to gastroparesis include postprandial fullness, early satiation nausea and vomiting. Gastroprokinetic drugs are the preferred treatment option. A number of problems with the concept of gastroparesis have been identified recently. Major overlap exists with the symptom complex of the functional dyspepsia subtype of postprandial distress syndrome. The distinguishing feature of gastroparesis is delayed GE, but the correlation between delayed emptying and symptom pattern or severity in gastroparesis is modest and the stability of delayed emptying over time is poor. Other pathophysiological mechanisms such as hypersensitivity or impaired accommodation may also underlie symptoms in patients with gastroparesis. Moreover, symptomatic response to prokinetic therapy is variable and cannot be predicted based on the degree of enhancing GE. A number of ...
August is gastroparesis month, and its a great time to learn more about this digestive condition. Many people do not realize how important our ability to break down food is until they experience problems. What do you need to know about Gastroparesis?. What Is Gastroparesis?. Gastroparesis is a weakness in the stomach muscles. This causes poor grinding of the food a person eats. Normally, food is ground into pieces by muscle contractions in the stomach. Ground up particles and liquid are gradually emptied into the small intestine. A metering process ensures that food is mixed with adequate digestive juices.. If the stomach muscles are weakened, then the contractions do not thoroughly grind food particles. Contents are not emptied into the intestine properly.. What Are the Symptoms of Gastroparesis?. Vomiting and nausea are the two main symptoms of gastroparesis. Some patients also experience bloating that may or may not come with abdominal distension. Other symptoms include:. ...

Gastroparesis: Controlling with Medication - Dr. Bernsteins Diabetes Solution. A Complete Guide to Achieving Normal Blood...
There is no medication that will cure gastroparesis. The only cure is months or years of normal blood sugars. There are, however, some pharmaceutical preparations that may speed the emptying of your stomach after a meal if your gastroparesis is only mild or moderate in severity (page 361, footnote). These will help smooth out your blood sugar profiles after that meal. Most diabetics with mild to moderate gastroparesis will require medication before every meal.. When gastroparesis is very mild, it may be possible to get away with medication only before supper. For some reason-perhaps because most people tend not to be as physically active after supper, and may have their largest meal of the day in the evening-digestion of supper appears to be more impaired than that of other meals. It is also likely that stomach-emptying is slower in the evening, even for nondiabetics.. Medications for gastroparesis may take the form of liquids or pills. The question immediately arises that if pills must ...
Can gastroparesis kill you - What Doctors Want You to Know
Can gastroparesis kill you - Can gastroparesis kill you? Gastroparesis. I have never seen a death due to gastroparesis alone. Theoretically, the resulting dehydration from the vomiting could kill you, if not treated appropriately, particularly if you have other disease conditions. Gastroparesis usually involves chronic vomiting due to paralysis of the stomach which leads to dehydration, and often requires hospitalization to manage the dehdyration and salt losses.
Understanding the Etiology and Spectrum of Idiopathic Gastroparesis - Practical Gastro
Although the pathophysiology of idiopathic gastroparesis remains unclear, some mechanisms and explanations are evolving (Figure 1). Vagal function and regulation have been shown to be impaired among patients with DG, however, to a lesser extent in IG.8,9 Also, the role of the vagus nerve in ghrelin secretion has been proposed. Ghrelin is released mainly by neuroendocrine cells in the gastric fundus and duodenum and has been suggested to function as an appetite-stimulating hormone acting centrally through vagal afferent pathways.8 Ghrelin also has also been shown to stimulate gastric contractility and improve meal related symptoms and gastric emptying (GE) in IG patients.10 Full thickness gastric biopsies in patients with gastroparesis (compared to matched-controls) revealed that nNOS expression was more frequently decreased in IG than in DG (40% vs 20%). Increased connective tissue stroma, however, was visualized in both IG and DG via electron microscopy.11 Loss of interstitial cells of Cajal ...

Treatment of gastroparesis depends on the severity of the symptoms. Dietary changes may be helpful and include eating several small meals each day rather than three large meals. The meals should be low in fiber, fat, and roughage. Liquids are often better handled than solid food in patients with gastroparesis. For diabetic patients, controlling blood sugar levels may decrease symptoms of gastroparesis. [Ask your doctor or a registered dietician for dietary guidelines.]. Symptoms of gastroparesis may improve with treatment using medications prescribed by a doctor. In very severe cases, generally with weight loss, a feeding tube is placed in the small intestine to provide nutrition in a way that avoids the stomach.. Newer treatments are being evaluated. One, gastric electric stimulation, uses a pacemaker (a surgically implanted battery operated device) on the stomach. It may be used in some cases where all types of medications fail to adequately control the symptoms of nausea and ...

Oxytocin prolongs the gastric emptying time in patients with diabetes mellitus and gastroparesis, but does not affect satiety...
Oxytocin is released in response to a fatty meal. Blockage of the oxytocin receptor led to slower gastric emptying whereas stimulation resulted in less satiety in healthy volunteers. Patients with diabetes mellitus and gastroparesis lack oxytocin elevation, and dyspepsia is partly caused by reduced fundus accommodation causing early satiety and related symptoms. The aim of this study was thus to examine the effect of oxytocin on gastric emptying, satiety and volume intake in patients with gastrointestinal pathology. Gastric emptying scintigraphy was performed twice in 12 patients with diabetic gastroparesis, once with oxytocin and once with saline as intravenous infusions. The patients scored their sensation of satiety using a visual analogue scale (VAS). The gastric emptying in patients with gastroparesis was prolonged during oxytocin infusion (p = 0.034) without affecting satiety. A slow satiety drinking test was performed in 14 patients with functional dyspepsia. The patients scored their satiety

Acupuncture Improves Diabetic Gastroparesis - Diabetes Self-ManagementDiabetes Self-Management
To determine whether stimulating acupuncture points on the skin via electrical stimulation (rather than needles) could control symptoms in people with diabetic gastroparesis, researchers enrolled 12 people - four men and eight women, with an average age of 51 - in an eight-week study. Participants were randomly assigned to receive either four weeks of electrical stimulation of gastrointestinal-specific acupuncture points via watch-sized stimulators or four weeks of a sham (inactive) treatment. At the end of this period, the participants were switched to the alternate treatment for the remaining four weeks of the study. Active treatments involved placing stimulators at acupuncture points p6 (just above the wrist crease) and ST36 (on the front of the leg, just below the knee). As stated by study author Richard W. McCallum, MD, Those points, according to Chinese medicine, tap into control centers for nausea, heartburn, and regurgitation. They also are near nerves. Inactive treatments, for the ...

Gastric bezoars are usually asymptomatic. When symptoms are present, the most common include postprandial fullness, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, anorexia, and weight loss.. Once a doctor decides why a persons stage of stomach acid is low, these people can recommend ways to relieve or prevent signs and symptoms. A damaged vagus nerve prevents the muscles in the stomach and intestine from functioning, preventing food from moving through the digestive program properly. To form stomach acidity, you body needs points like b-vitamins, zinc, sodium and chloride ( essentially whole-food based). At doses lower than those used to treat infections, erythromycin stimulates contractions of typically the muscles of the abdomen and small intestine and it is useful for treating gastroparesis.. Gastroparesis results in poor grinding of food in the stomach into tiny particles and slow emptying of food from the belly into the small gut. Gastroparesis results in inadequate grinding of food simply by the ...
Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass versus Gastrectomy with Roux-en-Y Reconstruction for the Treatment of Gastroparesis - SAGES Abstract...
Joshua P Landreneau, MD, MSc1, Andrew T Strong, MD1, Kevin El-Hayek, MD1, Ricard Corcelles, MD2, Matthew Kroh, MD2, John Rodriguez, MD1. 1Cleveland Clinic, 2Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi. Introduction: Gastroparesis is a debilitating functional disorder of the stomach marked by delayed gastric emptying in the absence of mechanical obstruction. Patients with severe, refractory symptoms may ultimately be managed with Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) or gastrectomy with Roux-en-Y reconstruction. However it is unclear whether the stomach may left in situ, as with a RYGB, or resected as in gastrectomy. The present study aims to compare perioperative outcomes and long-term symptomatic relief between these operations.. Methods: All patients underwent RYGB or gastrectomy for the treatment of gastroparesis (GP) at our institution from September 2010 through March 2018 were retrospectively reviewed. Patients with prior gastric resection or whose primary operative indication was not gastroparesis were excluded ...
Gastroparesis: Nissen Fundoplication
In 2004, a study published by Masclee et al, in the Annals of Surgery showed that laparoscopic fundoplication increases gastric emptying independent of vagal nerve function. The authors nicely showed that 10% of fundoplication patients developed vagal nerve dysfunction post-operatively without affecting gastric emptying or the efficacy of fundoplication in controlling acid reflux. The etiology of gastric stasis is following Nissen surgery remains unclear. There are no established treatment guidelines for gastroparesis. Medications, gastric pacing and drainage procedures are not effective solutions. Subtotal gastrectomy and gastric bypass are associated with poor outcomes. Longitudinal gastrectomy with or without duodeno-jejunostomy seems to be very effective in curing gastroparesis. I have developed this technique several years ago and I have had the chance to apply it on 4 patients so far. Last year, a young man with gastroparesis following fundoplication surgery at an outside institution ...
Gastroparesis: How to Cope with GP/DTP Pain - Emotionally and Physically
Treating gastroparesis begins with identifying and treating the underlying condition. For instance, if diabetes is causing your gastroparesis, your doctor can work with you to help you control your diabetes. Beyond this, other gastroparesis treatments may include: Changes to your diet Your doctor may refer you to a dietitian who can work with you to find foods that are easier for you to digest, so that youre more likely to get enough calories and nutrients from the food you eat. A dietitian might suggest that you try to: Eat smaller meals more frequently. Eat low-fiber forms of high-fiber foods, such as well-cooked fruits and vegetables rather than raw fruits and vegetables. Choose mostly low-fat foods, but if you can tolerate them, add small servings of fatty foods to your diet. Avoid fibrous fruits and vegetables, such as oranges and broccoli, that may cause bezoars. If liquids are easier for you to ingest, try soups and pureed foods. Drink water throughout each meal. Try gentle exercise ...
Gastroparesis (also called delayed gastric emptying) happens when the stomach takes longer than normal to empty of food. For many people, gastroparesis is a lifelong condition. Read on to learn more about gastroparesis and how it can be managed.

Gastric electrical stimulation - Wikipedia
Gastric electrical stimulation, also known as implantable gastric stimulation, is the use of specific devices to provide electrical stimulation to the stomach to try to bring about weight loss in those who are overweight or improve gastroparesis. Gastric electrical stimulation is a pacemaker-like device with electrical connections to the surface of the stomach. The device works by disrupting of the motility cycle or stimulating enteric nervous system. There are a number of different devices on the market including Transend, Maestro, and Diamond. These devices are for treatment of gastroparesis. The best avaliable evidence, however, find that they are of questionable utility for this condition. As of 2017 it is not approved for use for obesity in the United States. The first studies done did not find a benefit, however, research is ongoing. Once food leaves the stomach and enters the duodenum, the gut-brain-liver axis is activated, which involves signaling between the gastrointestinal tract and ...

Board of Trustees - Oley Foundation
Mary and Bob Smithers joined the Oley Foundation Board of Trustees in the summer of 2014. Together, they bring the perspectives of consumer and caregiver to the board. Bob and Mary have been members of the Oley Foundation since 2002, and have served as Oley Ambassadors since 2011. They live in Gainesville, Florida.. Mary was diagnosed with idiopathic gastroparesis in 1985. In 1998, after her third episode, her stomach no longer emptied enough for her to sustain herself by eating orally. She went home on parenteral nutrition (HPN) for several short periods, but was taken off due to repeated infections. Instead, a G-J tube was placed and Mary began tube feeding. After bouts with dehydration, her doctor recommended a daily liter of IV fluid, which was subsequently changed to lactated ringers (LR). She adds multivitamins and trace elements to the LR three times per week. In addition, in 2001 Mary had a gastric stimulator placed, which helps reduce the feeling of nausea. She is currently on her third ...

Restoration of density of interstitial cells of Cajal in the jejunum of diabetic rats after quercetin supplementation
Introduction. Abnormalities in the motility of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract are a major complication of diabetes mellitus (DM) causing significant morbidity (1). Diabetes mellitus is commonly associated with gastrointestinal symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, bloating, epigastric burning sensation, abdominal discomfort and constipation (2,3). Diabetic gastroparesis is the best studied gastrointestinal complication of diabetes, since it affects many people with DM, causes significant morbidity and can interfere with glucose control (2,4). In animal models, DM is associated with enteric neuropathies (5-9) and loss of interstitial cells of Cajal (ICC) subpopulations in the GI tract (10-12).. ICC are non-neuronal cells in the GI muscularis propria, involved in generating the primary electrical pacemaker activity to control GI motility (13-15). These cells also form a bridge between enteric motor nerve terminals and smooth muscle cells (SMC). ICC also mediates enteric neural transmission ...
Surgical decision-making in acute appendicitis | BMC Surgery | Full Text
Acute abdominal pain is the cardinal symptom behind a vast number of abdominal conditions including several that require immediate surgical treatment. The ambition of the surgeon responsible is therefore to decide, as soon as possible, whether the underlying condition requires urgent or sub-acute surgical intervention. However, harmless or non-urgent problems may lie behind the same cardinal symptom. By employing cost- effective diagnostic measures avoiding unnecessary exposure of the patient to radiation, the challenge remains to identify those patients requiring emergency surgery from those who suffer from a less serious condition that may be treated conservatively and without time limitation. Dealing with such a highly complex decision-making process calls for a logically coordinated and systematic overall process . It is understood that the diagnosis of appendicitis is based on a balanced evaluation of signs, symptoms and tests, though, how one arrives at this balanced judgement can be ...

Hemoptysis (as a cardinal symptom/sign) - Oncology Nurse Advisor
The initial steps when a patient is experiencing massive hemoptysis include stabilization. Establishing an airway, ensuring adequate ventilation and circulatory stability are essential. The first intervention considered in an acute bleed is simply to turn the patient bleeding side down to keep from soiling the unaffected bronchial tree. Allowing the patient to clear his or her own airway is more effective than any mechanical intervention. Patients should be admitted to and monitored very closely in an intensive care unit (ICU). Endotracheal intubation should be considered if a patient cannot clear the bleeding or if the patient develops progressive respiratory distress or hypoxemia. Intubation with large-bore endotracheal tubes (e.g., 8.5 or 9 mm diameter) is recommended to facilitate suctioning and to allow bronchoscope insertion. If the patient has ongoing large-volume hemoptysis, the endotracheal tube can be advanced under direct bronchoscopic visualization into the non-bleeding airway. The ...

Erythromycin stimulates gastric emptying after esophagectomy with gastric replacement: A randomized clinical trial
UNLABELLED:Delayed gastric emptying after esophagogastrectomy can pose a significant early postoperative problem. Because erythromycin, which stimulates the gastric antral and duodenal motilin receptor, has been shown to significantly increase gastric emptying in patients with diabetic gastroparesis, we decided to evaluate its effect on gastric emptying after esophagogastrectomy. METHODS:Twenty-four patients (18 men and six women, age range 41 to 79 years, median 66 years) were randomized to receive either erythromycin lactobionate (200 mg in 50 ml normal saline solution intravenously) (n = 13) or placebo (50 ml normal saline solution intravenously (n = 11) 11 days after esophagogastrectomy (with pyloric drainage procedure). After erythromycin or placebo had been infused over a 15-minute period, patients ingested a solid meal (scrambled egg with bread) labeled with technetium 99m sulfur colloid (500 microCi) over approximately 15 minutes. Dynamic images of the stomach were then acquired over 90 ...

Wernickes encephalopathy as a complication of gastroparesis after emergency partial antrectomy.
Case report A 64-year-old woman with a history of hypertension and peptic ulcer disease was admitted to hospital. She had a 2-month history of vomiting, with difficulty eating and drinking, and felt bloated. These symptoms affected her appetite, resulting in a loss of 10 kg since symptom onset. Her presentation was further complicated by a recent 1-week history of visual hallucinations and new-onset generalised tonic-clonic seizures. Her past surgical history revealed an emergency laparotomy for a perforated gastric ulcer for which a partial gastrectomy had been performed. She had a history of severe alcohol abuse, but stopped drinking alcohol ,5 years ago. On clinical examination she was haemodynamically stable. She appeared very wasted, with reduced muscle bulk. However, on general examination there was no evidence suggestive of chronic liver disease or pressure sores. Her neurological examination revealed an altered mental state, with a Glasgow coma score of 11/15 (E3M4V4). She responded to ...

This is such a great topic. I put together the vagus nerve involvement about a week after the doctors told me my gall bladder ejection fractions were down to 18%. No gall stones, though. I was having LOWER right quadrant pain (and ruled out ovarian cancer first). The doctor said to have the gall bladder removed. I asked why. If there are no stones, but it is not working properly, that sounds neurological, doesnt it? (I tried to be nice). The pain turned out to be my ileocecal valve (this was AFTER I figured out about the vagus nerve connection for us!). Do you know what shocked me? The G.I. surgeon recommended I never have abdominal surgery unless it was life-threatening, because when they go in and remove organs, they pay no attention to the vagus nerve! This is why so many people have gastroparesis after abdominal surgery. We already fight gastroparesis if our vagus nerve is affected. The vagus nerve goes EVERYWHERE in our abdomens, but I am still surprised they dont try to salvage at ...
Buying Medications and Herbs Online to Fix My GI System - I Am Gnorb
The medical drama continues. Sort of. Except now it looks like weve started to find out whats going on with me. In short, it looks like my gallbladder isnt working right. Not gallstones, mind you - that came out perfectly clean - but rather that the muscle isnt squeezing like it should. (It might explain why I sometimes feel a horrible back pain (bloating?) in my middle back after eating, like if Im having a really bad spasm. As it turns out, lazy gallbladder is also a precursor to gallstones, which run in my family.) Luckily, the doc pretty much discounted the possibility of gastroparesis, which is great. Ive been reading horror stories left and right about that and scaring myself into the next life. (The people in the Yahoo Gastroparesis group are constantly in my prayers.)

Beginning in 2008 and continuing to the present, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has supported the Fragile X Clinical & Research Consortium (FXCRC) through grants designed to increase our understanding of Fragile X syndrome.. Studies of co-occurring conditions have typically focused on each condition alone by using cross-sectional data, without examining the associations with other features of FXS or without taking a systems approach. In order to conduct well-designed clinical trials that capture the entire spectrum of the disorder, the natural history of those with FXS needs to be determined. This is particularly true for adults with FXS, about whom almost nothing is known regarding life trajectory and medical complications..

Association Between Symptoms, Quality of Life, and Gastric Emptying in Dyspeptic Patients
In the literature, 30% to 40% of dyspeptic patients present delayed gastric emptying, diagnosed either by scintigraphy6 or by breath testing.7 We have found 45% of gastroparesis among dyspeptic patients in our cohort, which is slightly a greater percentage than what is described in the medical literature, maybe because we analyzed all dyspeptic patients referred for gastric emptying testing, and not only patients with FD according to the Rome criteria, but also because of normal values established by Bromer et al.34. In our study, gastric emptying broadly correlated to symptoms severity, quality of life and anxiety, and depression in an unselected population undergoing gastric emptying testing. There was no difference for symptoms and quality of life between groups with a T½ ≤ 166 or , 166 minutes. However, for a T½ , 200 minutes, there was a significant difference for postprandial fullness, abdominal pain, bloating, nausea and early satiety, and also for the TSS score and quality of life ...
Cavy Savvy: A Guinea Pig Blog: Ask a Guinea Pig: What Should I Know About Diabetic Guinea Pigs?
According to the American Diabetes Association, Diabetes mellitus (MEL-ih-tus), or simply, diabetes, is a group of diseases characterized by high blood glucose levels that result from defects in the bodys ability to produce and/or use insulin. There are two main types of diabetes, as well as gestational diabetes that occurs during pregnancy. In type 1 diabetes, the body does not produce insulin. In type 2 diabetes, the body fails to use insulin properly. In gestational diabetes, hormones from the placenta that help the baby develop also block insulin in the mothers body. For guinea pigs, Type 2 diabetes is probably the most common ...
Understanding symptoms variability in outpatients with AECOPD | Pulmonology
Discussion. Dyspnoea and cough were the most reported symptoms at the onset of AECOPD.1,2 Dyspnoea was the most prevalent symptom. Its time-recovery matched previous reports (i.e, 6 to 30 days).1,2 Cough was the symptom reported with the highest severity and the first to improve after treatment initiation. In COPD cough is the most common symptom for which individuals seek medical attention and is a cardinal symptom in upper tract infections,3 one of the most common causes of AECOPD. Our results support the need of increasing awareness about cough severity and behaviour. Recognising the cough pattern may aid to guide patients monitoring and interventions, reduce need for hospitalisation, recurrence of AECOPD and, consequently, costs and morbidity related with these events.. Differences in wheezing were only detected 45 days after the onset of the exacerbation, which differs from previous reports using computerised respiratory sound analysis (i.e., improvements 15 days after the AECOPD).4 Lack ...

Predictors of dyspnoea prevalence: Results from the BOLD study - Nuffield Department of Population Health
Dyspnoea is a cardinal symptom for cardiorespiratory diseases. No study has assessed worldwide variation in dyspnoea prevalence or predictors of dyspnoea. We used cross-sectional data from population-based samples in 15 countries of the Burden of Obstructive Lung Disease (BOLD) study to estimate prevalence of dyspnoea in the full sample, as well as in an a priori defined low-risk group (few risk factors or dyspnoea-associated diseases). Dyspnoea was defined by the modified Medical Research Council questions. We used ordered logistic regression analysis to study the association of dyspnoea with site, sex, age, education, smoking habits, low/high body mass index, self-reported disease and spirometry results. Of the 9484 participants, 27% reported any dyspnoea. In the low-risk subsample (n=4329), 16% reported some dyspnoea. In multivariate analyses, all covariates were correlated to dyspnoea, but only 13% of dyspnoea variation was explained. Females reported more dyspnoea than males (odds ratio ∼2.1).

Leukotrienes and prostanoids as mast cell mediators and modulators of asthmatic airway obstruction.. The aim of this project is to increase the understanding of mechanisms behind the development of asthma and other inflammatory airway diseases. Acknowledged internationally, our research group has over the years gathered experience and knowledge in leukotrienes, prostanoids and other inflammatory mediators. We have shown earlier that leukotrienes, together with histamine, cause some of the cardinal symptoms of asthma. The mechanisms through which leukotrienes exert their cellular effects are presently not well understood. Like leukotrienes, prostanoids are derived from the poly-unsaturated, essential fatty acid, arachidonic acid. The mechanisms and the location of prostanoid generation and effects differ importantly from those of the leukotrienes. The prostanoid family contains members that mediate asthma augmentation and airway inflammation. On the other hand, relief of asthma symptoms by other ...

Glomerular Hematuria: Cause or Consequence of Renal Inflammation?
Glomerular hematuria is a cardinal symptom of renal disease. Glomerular hematuria may be classified as microhematuria or macrohematuria according to the number of red blood cells in urine. Recent evidence suggests a pathological role of persistent glomerular microhematuria in the progression of renal disease. Moreover, gross hematuria, or macrohematuria, promotes acute kidney injury (AKI), with subsequent impairment of renal function in a high proportion of patients. In this pathological context, hemoglobin, heme, or iron released from red blood cells in the urinary space may cause direct tubular cell injury, oxidative stress, pro-inflammatory cytokine production, and further monocyte/macrophage recruitment. The aim of this manuscript is to review the role of glomerular hematuria in kidney injury, the role of inflammation as cause and consequence of glomerular hematuria, and to discuss novel therapies to combat hematuria ...

Petition · Our teen daughter deserves a day without pain. Help her get needed Autoimmune treatment. · Change.org

Dysautonomia is often accompanied by Gastroparesis or a dysfunction of the nerves of the gastrointestinal tract, causing slow and painful digestion. Social impact is also difficult: friends dont come to ...
