Gastroparesis is a medical term for delayed stomach emptying. It is caused by damage to the vagus nerve, which runs from the brain to the stomach, and is commonly associated with type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Diabetes' uncontrolled high blood sugar (glucose) levels harm nerves and veins throughout the body, including the vagus nerve in the gastrointestinal tract. Idiopathic gastroparesis is a similar condition with no known cause. It is treated in the same way that diabetes-related gastroparesis.
