Gastroparesis Awareness Month
August is Gastroparesis Awareness Month, a time to focus attention on important health messages about gastroparesis diagnosis, treatment, and quality of life issues. The goals for Gastroparesis Awareness Month 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.
