Rhythm Announces Study Demonstrating High Prevalence of Diabetic Gastroparesis Symptoms in the U.S.

cessary to establish gastroparesis as the cause of the patient's symptoms."

"This careful study shows that diabetic gastroparesis is indeed a relatively common problem and one that is definitely under-recognized and perhaps underappreciated in the U.S.," said Richard W. McCallum , MD, Professor and Founding Chairman of the Department of Internal Medicine, Texas Tech University. "This study reminds us that not only is type 2 diabetes predominant, but that symptoms consistent with gastroparesis are very common in these patients. This is probably the future of diabetes--that we'll be seeing more and more gastroparetics that are of type 2 etiology. As clinicians, we need to be more focused on type 2 diabetics and do more diagnostic testing that will lead to treatment, hopefully at an earlier stage."

About the Diabetic Gastroparesis Epidemiology Study    
The goal of the study was to determine the prevalence of gastroparesis symptoms and diagnosis among U.S. adults with diabetes using a population-based survey. The study assessed the symptoms of diabetic gastroparesis among a national sample of 911 patients with type 1 and type 2 diabetes using a novel symptom assessment tool being developed specifically for diabetic gastroparesis symptoms following FDA guidelines for Patient Reported Outcomes (PRO) development for this disorder. Patients were administered a questionnaire to record their gastroparesis symptoms and severity over the most recent 24 hours and seven days, specifically for the symptoms of bloating, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, and postprandial fullness. The survey also assessed these patients for disease history, diagnosis of gastroparesis, comorbidities, glycemic control, and current medication use. This study was funded by Rhythm.
