I am asking about diabetic and idiopathic gastroparesis.I wonder how many people out of 100 might suffer from this.
I was diagnosed with gastroparesis a couple years ago. I am not a diabetic. The doctor is not sure why I have this condition. They implanted a pacemaker to keep my stomach functioning. I would not wish this on anyone. I hope you find the answers you are seeking.
Best of luck,
Sounds like you are running or bidding on a study. The age-adjusted (to 2000 U.S. whites) incidence per 100,000 person-years of definite gastroparesis for the years 1996–2006 was 2.5 (95% CI, 1.2–3.8) for men, and 9.8 (95% CI, 7.5–12.1) for women. The age-adjusted prevalence of definite gastroparesis per 100,000 person on January 1, 2007 was 9.6 (95% CI, 1.8–17.4) for men and 37.8 (95% CI, 23.2–52.4) for women. Overall survival was significantly lower than the age and gender specific expected survival computed from the Minnesota white population (p<0.05).
