    00:00 Next we get into what's known as Gastric Dysmotility Syndromes And we have two different pathogenesis.

    00:08 One is called paralysis of the stomach secondary to maybe perhaps diabetic neuropathy. Or you have another condition or a manifestation called Dumping Syndrome.Let's take a look of Gastroparesis first.

    00:22 Delayed gastric emptying due to autonomic neuropathy as may occur with? Good. Diabetic neuropathy without structural obstruction. Literally paralysis of the stomach due to nerve damage. Nausea, vomiting, early satiety, weight loss, avoidance of food.

    00:42 And remember, with gastroparesis, if you can't move forward from your stomach into duodenum you might then move backward. And so therefore, may result in GERD, regurgitation. Management here is going to come in the course of prokinetic. The major, major cause would be diabetes mellitus, post−vagotomy, idiopathic, post infectious as well. So apart from diabetes mellitus, there might be other issues in which there might be nerve damage taking place to the stomach. Diagnosis. Radio−nuclide emptying study.

    01:18 You won't see proper. You see delayed emptying. Increased transit time from your stomach to your duodenum. Management. You want prokinetics such as Metoclopramide.
