I have been diagnosed with gastroparthsis due to my sugars being out of control. Now that my sugar is better I was told that it could get better just wondering if anyone else has had this problem.

I have gastroparesis occasionally. It results from high Blood Glucose (BG) levels acting on your vagus nerve which controls peristalsis and the valve which empties the stomach into the intestinal tract. Having gastroparesis can complicate one's BG control as food builds up in the stomach but does not empty into the intestine where the nutrients are absorbed into the bloodstream.

Fortuntely I haven't experienced a recurrence recently/

I pray you will get better as your numbers improve.
