Raise Awareness For Gastroparesis And Fight For A Cure

Gastroparesis is a severe gastrointestinal disorder that prevents proper stomach emptying and results in a paralyzed stomach. It is rapidly becoming a more common diagnosis but the good news is that we can now prevent it.

So go ahead and spread the word this August! Design your very own 100% silicone wristbands at amazingwristbands.com – your number one source of top quality bracelets.

The more we know about a certain problem, the easier for us to pinpoint and fix it. We need to work together to find new treatment options and improve patients’ quality of life.

What exactly is gastroparesis? A weakness of the stomach muscles that makes breaking down food into small molecules a difficult process. Subsequently, it slows down emptying of food from the stomach to the small intestine.

How to recognize it: It can sometimes be difficult to diagnose. People with gastroparesis may experience symptoms like nausea, vomiting, weight loss, reduced appetite, feeling full after eating very little, dehydration, severe abdominal pain and bloating.

While not deadly, it can result in life threatening complications.

What causes it? Gastroparesis is often associated with poor control of diabetes, which damages the vagus nerve—а nerve that controls the stomach muscles.

Risk factors include abdominal surgery, radiation therapy, viral infections, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, and scleroderma.

Is it curable? Although there is no permanent cure for gastroparesis, you can avoid unpleasant consequences along the way by adopting certain lifestyle changes:

  • Begin a lifetime of healthy habits and start eating more liquid foods.
  • Replace big meals with small frequent snacks.
  • Go for low fat and fiber-filled foods, as high fat meals are harder to digest.
  • If you have diabetes, keep your blood sugar under control.
  • Avoid alcohol and smoking, as they slow down gastric emptying.
  • Eat slowly and chew your food thoroughly to make digestion easier

Increase Awareness and Promote Dialogue

Clinical research would help identify first-class treatment options for this so-called stomach paralysis, hence the crucial role of raising both awareness and funding.

August is Gastroparesis Awareness Month aiming to provoke debates on diagnosis and to highlight treatment and preventive strategies.

It poses the best opportunity for us to help patients and their families cope with challenges along the way.

There are many ways you can go out there and make this your mission. Tune in this August and check out the special events throughout the whole campaign. Don’t forget to share what you know about it either online or by word of mouth.

Continue your support by donating funds to research foundations, hospitals, and charities. Remember fundraising can change someone’s life forever!

Promote your cause to the world by signing up for a volunteering activity or organizing an awareness course of action in your community. The earlier people learn about the symptoms, the more chances for a positive outcome they are equipped with.
