Gastroparesis occurs when your stomach empties too slowly, causing undigested food to remain in it too long. You may experience severe nausea, unintended weight loss and malnutrition. Gastroparesis can be associated with diabetes or an underlying digestive disorder, but can also occur without a known cause. There's no cure, so people with gastroparesis usually need ongoing treatment with medication.
