Gastroparesis, also known as delayed gastric emptying, occurs when your stomach doesn’t work properly. Normally, after you swallow food, your stomach muscles begin squeezing and tightening, crushing the food and moving it into the small intestine. If you have gastroparesis, your stomach muscles don’t contract properly, which delays the process of digestion. If you think you, or a loved one, are suffering from gastroparesis, our Thibodaux, LA providers can help. Contact a Digestive Health Center location in your community to request a consultation.

Gastroparesis symptoms will vary from person to person. Some of the most common symptoms of gastroparesis may include:

  • Heartburn or stomach pain
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting, especially vomiting pieces of undigested food
  • Feeling full after only a few bites of food
  • Bloating
  • Lack of appetite
  • Unintended weight loss

People with diabetes are most at risk for gastroparesis. Some other contributing factors are medications (such as pain medicines and antidepressants), GERD, eating disorders, and surgery on the esophagus. 

Gastroparesis is a chronic condition, meaning it cannot be cured but can be managed. Managing gastroparesis will allow you to maintain your health and well-being. This condition is often managed by medications prescribed by your Digestive Health Center GI provider at one of our Thibodaux, LA locations. Your GI provider will assess your condition and help you find the best treatment options for you.

If you are experiencing symptoms like early satiety, nausea, or chronic abdominal pain, it may be time to reach out to an experienced GI provider. At Digestive Health Center, our team is dedicated to providing the most innovative treatments while ensuring you receive patient-centered care. For help managing gastroparesis, contact one of our Thibodaux, LA locations to take the first step in taking control of your GI condition.

I just recently moved back to this area and I had a great doctor in Houston. But remembered Dr. Monier from years ago. His office staff was very professional and engaging. Dr. Monier takes him time and listens (rare quality these days). Very happy with the first visit.

Happy with Dr Monier..would be happier if I could talk to him directly on follow ups rather than through nurse

I would recommend Dr.Monier over any other gastroenterologist. He takes good care of his patients and answers all your questions without hesitation. His nurses and staff are all very friendly.
