Biologic gastric emptying time (BGET) was measured in 24 patients with severe diabetes mellitus complicated by vascular damage and peripheral or sensory neuropathy. This population had a BGET of 192 +/- 32.9 min (mean +/- s.e.m. normal 40-85 min). Patients with diabetic gastroenteropathy had prolongation of BGET to 295 +/- 45 (p < 0.05). Metoclopramide… CONTINUE READING
