Diabetic Gastroparesis

Delayed Gastric Emptying due to Diabetes Mellitus


Presentation

  • Officials with the FDA have said they will not issue a new drug application (NDA) for the recurrent diabetic gastroparesis medication Gimoti in the application's present form, but they have issued recommendations to address the 2 remaining approvability[contemporaryclinic.pharmacytimes.com]
  • Many patients present with symptoms that are not distinguishable from gastroparesis. Also, it has been reported that rapid gastric emptying was more common than delayed gastric emptying in patients with autonomic dysfunction.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Asymptomatic
  • Abstract The incidental discovery of unsuspected and asymptomatic gastric retention in moderately severe diabetics led to a study of this condition. References to gastric retention in diabetes are very scanty in current literature.[annals.org]
  • Gastric retention may be asymptomatic in some, possibly due to afferent dysfunction in the setting of vagal denervation ( 2, 3 ), and delayed GE may be associated with recurrent hypoglycemia in patients without upper GI symptoms ( 4, 5 ).[diabetes.diabetesjournals.org]

Nausea
  • Diabetic gastroparesis creates feelings of bloating, nausea, vomiting and pain. If you have diabetes, ClinSearch is enrolling volunteers in a study testing an investigational medication.[clinsearch-us.com]

  • Abstract Nausea, vomiting, chronic abdominal pain, and constipation developed in three children with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus beginning 1 to 7 years after the onset of diabetes.[pediatrics.aappublications.org]
  • This may be due to poorly controlled and badly managed diabetes Signs and symptoms Edit Some of the signs and symptoms of diabetic gastroparesis include [1] : Bloating of abdominal, Nausea and vomiting of undigested food, Heartburn, Premature feeling[diabetes.fandom.com]
  • Gastroparesis is an episodic condition that disproportionately affects adult women and is characterized by slow or delayed gastric emptying of the stomach’s contents after meals, often resulting in flares of symptoms that include nausea, vomiting, abdominal[contemporaryclinic.pharmacytimes.com]
Abdominal Pain
  • Abstract Nausea, vomiting, chronic abdominal pain, and constipation developed in three children with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus beginning 1 to 7 years after the onset of diabetes.[pediatrics.aappublications.org]

Treatment

  • If approved, Gimoti would be the first non-oral drug treatment for symptoms associated with acute and recurrent diabetic gastroparesis in adult women and would represent the first significant advancement in the treatment of gastroparesis in 40 years.[contemporaryclinic.pharmacytimes.com]
