Signs and Symptoms

Sleepy day. I just woke from my nap and am ready for another. Frankly I blame all my gastro parties with the paramedics. Multiple ER visits. This recent blooming cold sore on my lip.

1. Gastroparesis is best handled by a Gerontologist, as it’s a digestive problem, so not your regular doctor or even your Certified Diabetes Educator.

An endocrinologist is my number 1 recommendation for those with diabetes- they specialize in the intricacies of diabetes of which gastroparesis is a part.
2. This is most likely the premier cause of the”dead in bed” syndrome when your blood sugar goes way too low while sleeping. It’s serious.
3. The symptoms of gastroparesis vary a lot – you may be passing out for no discernible reason, feel nauseous, constipated or otherwise feeling your digestive system isn’t ‘right’. Don’t mess around. Go get help.
