From America OnLine:

My 13 year old granddaughter has had diabetes for 5 years. Now she is having problems with her stomach. My daughter said that it was called gastro something. Do you have information on this?


The word you're looking for is gastroparesis. It's a complication that can be treated with changes in meal composition and timing, and with two different prescription drugs: Propulsid (cisapride) or Reglan (metoclopramide).
