Diabetes is the most common known underlying cause of gastroparesis.
Neuropathy of diabetes affects multiple neurological systems of the body, including the one controlling the digestive tract. If the vagus nerves that send impulses to the stomach and small intestine is impaired due to diabetic processes, the movement of food through the digestive tract becomes slower.
This condition is called gastroparesis or delayed gastric emptying. Gastroparesis manifests as heartburn, nausea, vomiting of undigested food, feeling full at the beginning of the meal, abdominal bloating and weight loss. And because the food stays in the stomach for longer periods of time, it can promote the growth of bacteria, or form a solid mass called bezoars that may cause nausea vomiting and obstruction of the small intestine.
Also, it becomes harder to control blood sugar because glucose is absorbed in the intestine, and this is delayed due to its prolonged stay in the stomach. This condition can be prevented by controlling blood glucose level, however, gastroparesis patients are advised to eat smaller meals, eating slowly, sitting upright after meals and taking a walk after meals. It is also recommended to avoid eating high fat and high fiber foods, because these kinds of foods are harder to digest.
Glucose in your bloodstream attaches to life-giving proteins, adversely affecting how these proteins are meant to work. As these undesirable “Glycated Proteins” increase, so do the A1c levels in your body, along with the risk of damage to your heart, blood vessels, kidneys, and eyesight.
Fortunately, there’s help. Lysulin acts as a guardian by binding to glucose, shielding your proteins from reacting with glucose. The Lysulin bound to glucose is safely excreted through urine. Actively managing your blood sugar promotes metabolic, cardiovascular, and neurological health. Lysulin provides nutritional support to help you improve your health and maintain healthy Hemoglobin A1c levels.
