Diabetic gastroparesis intestinal obstruction

Common Questions and Answers about Diabetic gastroparesis intestinal obstruction

diabetes

I have also previously been diagnosed with gastroparesis; gastritis; IBS and a small hiatal hernia.
Without more details, possible causes that come to my mind for such intestinal pain could be Celiac disease, Crohn's disease, diabetic gastroparesis, gallbladder disease, or severe constipation. There are other possibilities, of course, but abdominal pain can take time and effort to sort out. Good luck!
She was hospitalized April 19th and after many tests, determine she had intestinal pseudo-obstruction. Please see my question and the responses by virgo 57 and kimbacat. They were very helpful. They also may have suggestions for more websites for you. I pray everything will be all right for your mom and for you.
When a more extensive motility disorder is present which involves the small intestine and large intestine in addition to the stomach it implies a generalized muscle or nerve disorder of the gastrointestinal tract called chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction.
However, I have no health insurance. Based on what I've studied and have been told, the most likely culprits are gastroparesis (very slow emptying of the stomach) OR gall bladder disease. It is true that when your stomach retains its food load an excessively long time, the contents can somewhat "ferment." I also have been told that bile typically tastes sulfuric. So, I am no closer to reaching a conclusion.
Has your doctor looked for other possible causes e.g. gastroparesis small intestine pathology? Abdominal pain is often a diagnostic dilemna and a multitude of tests may be needed before a diagnosis is made.
I then had an ERCP done and while no obstruction was noted I did end up with pancreatitis and was in the hospital for 5 days. The 'pancreatitis' pain has now resolved but my original pain remains. I can now relate some of the pain to after meals but that pain usually occurs on the right side. The left sided pain is ALWAYS there. It gets bad and then eases up but is always there. I do become nauseated at times but I am not vomiting. I lost 10 pounds in the hospital but put 6 back on.
This is a dangerous thing to have because you are in a pre-diabetic state. Anyone who has PCOS should have you blood sugar and insulin checked. If you are overweight and can't loose weight even with an extreme diet and exercise you should get checked for this syndrome. The medication (metformin) I am on for the insulin resistance is helping with my muscle pain and low blood sugar. I have a long way to go before I am normal again. I also have pancreatic pain and it isn't a good sign.
I get something like this too...but I have LOTS of intestinal problems...and namely...I also had my gallbladder taken out about 10 years ago....I get "attacks" where I have SEVERE pain in the midle of my gut (triggered by pain meds.....wine....greasy food...and ????) I get VERY pale...sweat PROFUSELY, drool and then either vomit....have watery stools, fart or....if I'm REALLY unlucky....suffer from these WAVES of pain, vaso-vagal(?) type symptoms for HOURS until they subside...
