Can gastroparesis also cause diarrhea?  My husband was diagnosed with gastroparesis 4 yrs ago, but has no problems since. He is having symptoms again, but this time with diarrhea, sometimes up to 4 times a day.  Could this be the same problem or something else?  Has had a blood test and stool test and nothing irregular.

Thank you for your time.


Gastroparesis is a symptom of the various conditions. In many cases, it is difficult to verify the real cause.
The most common reasons for gastroparesis is suppression of the normal motility of the stomach such as
•   Certain medications, which influence autonomic nervous system
•   Neuropathy after diabetes, Parkinson's, heavy metals, dysbiosis, etc
•   Deficiency of minerals
•   Infection (bacterial, viral, yeast)
•   Post-op conditions
•   Hormonal changes
Everything above may influence in the bowel patterns (diarrhea, constipation).

You have to be serious to gastroparesis and try to verify the actual causes. Symptomatic treatment just suppresses the symptoms but not real cause and can lead to further problems.

If your husband continues experiencing this symptom, I can give good advice if you fill up the Biotherapy’s Patient Questionnaire and send it to me by email or fax.

After that, call to my office for phone consultation. I help many with this situation.

I wish you and your husband good health.
