DIABETIC GASTROPARESIS: PATHOPHYSIOLOGY, DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENTS
Friday, June 5, 2015
New Mexico Carpenters Union Training Center
During this session attendees will learn more about gastroparesis, a disorder affecting people with both type 1 and type 2 diabetes in which the stomach takes too long to empty its contents … it’s really a pain in the gut!
Gastroparesis can make diabetes worse by making it more difficult to manage blood glucose. Our presenters will help you to identify treatment options, including blood sugar management, insulin adjustments, diet, medications, and gastric electric stimulation.
