What is gastroparesis?
Gastroparesis is a condition that affects your stomach. Your stomach’s motility (or movement of its muscles) is slowed down or doesn’t work at all when you have gastroparesis. This results in your stomach not emptying properly because your nerves and muscles aren’t functioning at their normal strength. To learn more about this condition and how it affects your gut health, schedule a consultation with our GI providers at GI Alliance of Illinois.
What are common symptoms of gastroparesis?
There are multiple symptoms associated with gastroparesis. Some of these include heartburn, feeling full quickly after eating, bloating, chronic abdominal pain, poor blood sugar control, and poor appetite associated with weight loss. Additional symptoms to consider include:
- Acid reflux

Amazing bedside manner !
Dr. Janda has many years of experience and has very good "bedside manners." He made me feel comfortable and explained the colonoscopy procedure to me in a clear, concise manner. Staff at his office were all friendly and professional. I recommend Dr. Janda to anyone who needs gastrointestinal care.
