I saw in a post from ilovecats that she believed her gerd from from diabetes. just wanted to say, the gastroparesis is from diabetes and GP causes gerd... if it doesnt go down, it goes up or bloats you. it is very common to have GP and reflux...

do you take anything for the GP? mine is post viral/idiopathic.... i used to take reglan.. made me sad... now i take domperidone as needed.. and i have been trying nexium and protonix... took protonix for years then prilosec otc.. back to protonix... purple pill doesnt work as good for me.

just passing along GP is a cause of reflux... but yes the diabetes can cause it... it can damage the vagus nerve.

I have gastroparesis and also take domperidon.
I have had it for a year and it has been very hard to live with.
They are going to put in a gastric pacemaker.
I am alittle scared..
Is there any FYI's???
