Help for Gastric Problems

Gastric Problems, also known as flatulence, gastric problems do not really mean any kind of disease. Rather, these occur because of some underlying condition or some distress affecting the digestive system. Gastric problems take their toll on the health of the person by showing their effects either as stomach pain or by making the person lose his appetite.

Gastric Problems in Diabetes

Diabetes is a systemic disease that affects almost every part of your body. Of these, the digestive system is the most badly affected. While gastrointestinal disorders are commonly experienced by everyone, diabetics have a much higher risk of suffering from indigestion, food poisoning, gallstones, and ulcers.

5 Common Gastric Problems Experienced by Diabetics

Diabetes is a disease marked by an inability to metabolize sugar and can be caused by the pancreas not producing enough insulin, or the body’s cells not responding appropriately to insulin. When these sugars aren’t metabolized, they build up in the body and can cause a range of symptoms that vary from mild to severe. One of the common symptoms of diabetes is stomach problems such as gastroparesis,

5 common gastrointestinal problems experienced by diabetics are;

  1. Gastroparesis: High blood sugar levels can damage the vagus nerve that controls the emptying of the stomach. Because of this damage, the muscles of the stomach and intestines do not work optimally, leading to a condition known as Gastroparesis. This is a condition where the stomach cannot empty itself properly and the digestion process is slowed down. Gastroparesis can cause bloating, nausea, pain in the abdomen, heartburn, and a loss of appetite. It can also cause undigested food in the stomach to harden and form lumps that block food from moving into the intestines. This disease cannot be cured, but can be managed with medication and a special diet.
  2. Ulcers: Stomach ulcers can be described as open sores that develop on the inner lining of the stomach, esophagus, and the beginning of the small intestine. These ulcers form because of bacterial infections. Diabetes weakens a person’s immune system, thus reducing their ability to fight these infections and increasing the risk of developing ulcers. Diabetes also increases the risk of bleeding from these ulcers and secondary infections that may arise from it.
  3. Yeast infections: Diabetics are extremely vulnerable to yeast infections. This is aggravated by fluctuation in blood sugar levels and can extend from the mouth to the esophagus. Common symptoms of this type of yeast infection are a pain in the throat and difficulty swallowing. It may also cause heartburn and intestinal bleeding if left untreated.
  4. Celiac sprue: This condition creates gluten allergies and causes the inflammation and thinning of the small intestine’s mucosa. Sometimes, this condition may interfere with the absorption of food and lead to diarrhoea and weight loss.
  5. Diabetic diarrhea: Patients who have been suffering from diabetes for a few years may experience an increased urge to pass stools frequently. This is usually related to gastric problems in the colon, which cause fluids to move at a faster than normal speed through the small bowel and colon. It may also be caused because of the secretion of fluids in the colon and improper absorption of food. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a doctor.
