Gastroparesis Awareness Month

August 1, 2023 August 31, 2023 CDT

Gastroparesis Awareness Month, otherwise known as Digestive Tract Paralysis, is observed in August and sponsored by the Gastroparesis Patient Association for Cures and Treatments, Inc. Gastroparesis Awareness Month is a time to focus attention on important health messages about gastroparesis diagnosis, treatment, and quality of life issues.

Gastroparesis Awareness Month goals include improving understanding of gastroparesis to help patients and families manage the condition, and encouraging preventive strategies.

Symptoms of gastroparesis can impair quality of life and well-being. The severity of gastroparesis ranges from being uncomfortable to debilitating, and in some cases life-threatening.
