Type 2 diabetes and stomach issues9/28/2012
A diabetic complication known as gastroparesis may be the culprit of your digestive problems.
Gastroparesis is a digestive condition that can result from type 1 or type 2 diabetes. It develops when changes in blood sugar have taken a damaging toll on stomach nerves. This is a form of neuropathy, and due to its impairment of stomach commands, patients may start to struggle with digestion.
Whether you're experiencing nausea, bloating or diarrhea, any of these digestive issues could stem from this condition. Much of daily life can become uncomfortable, taking the joy out of meal times with family and friends.
If you have diabetes and are experiencing digestive discomfort, talk to your physician today. Whether it's gastroparesis or a colon concern, he or she will be your best source for advice and treatment.
