What is Gastroparesis?
Gastroparesis is a digestive
motility disorder where the vagus nerve is damaged. The muscles and nerves of the stomach, intestines and other
GI organs become paralyzed. This condition delays food emptying from the stomach and other GI organs which
can result in serious complications and further gastrointestinal problems. 1 out of every 2 diabetics will develop
Gastroparesis. This is 50 percent of all patients.
-National Institutes of Health estimates there are over 5
million Gastroparesis patients in the United States. Lack of medical education of Gastroparesis and patients not
being properly diagnosed are still left untreated, suffering in silence.
*Gastroparesis is most commonly caused by diabetes,
but can also be hereditary or occur as a result of surgery on the stomach or vagus nerve, viral infections, food poisoning,
MS/Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, ALS/Lou Gehrig's disease, stroke, medications that slow contractions in the intestines
such as anticholinergics and narcotics, gastric bypass, lapband, gastric sleeve surgery, smooth muscle disorders, Scleroderma,
gastroesophageal reflux disease, metabolic disorders, autoimmune diseases, chemo/radiation therapy, Bells Palsy syndrome,
Ramsey Hunt syndrome, Anorexia nervosa and Bulimia.
*Idiopathic Gastroparesis has
no known origin. Many diagnostic tests can be performed however it is still unknown to the medical profession the cause
of those patients who suffer from this more rare type of Gastroparesis.
"The Gastroparesis Awareness Campaign
Our mission is to spread world
wide international public awareness and education for this debilitating GI disorder.
The most important issue will be continued
communication with local Government on increasing federal funds for research and development. Public awareness activities helping
to educate all state citizens and health professionals about Gastroparesis. We will continue close communication
with current bio-tech companies conducting research and studies of possible future Gastroparesis drugs
(diabetic GP patients). The sixth round for individual state Government help declaring national events
for Gastroparesis Awareness will continue summer and fall 2013.
*Don't forget to check out and order the Gastroparesis
Awareness Campaign t-shirts and the official Gastroparesis Awareness magnetic ribbons.
TOGETHER WE WILL FIGHT FOR A CURE!

to not affiliate with either state from this point on. We do not condone hunting as a sport of these sacred animals.
