Gastroparesis Awareness Month 2019 – Statistics Survey

 

We wanted to share the results of a survey conducted on behalf of our online #Gastroparesis community by Trisha Bundy.

The survey consisted of 5 basic questions and was shared publicly on Facebook and Twitter as well as in our closed Gastroparesis Support Group and in our Gastroparesis: Fighting for Change advocacy groups. We had 598 total respondents.

Interesting to note that 56% of those responding are labeled idiopathic, meaning the cause of their Gastroparesis is unknown or has not yet been identified. We long for the day when we might all at least learn the cause of this illness. How can we speak of cures if we do not understand the origin?

About the author: Gastroparesis: Fighting For Change Admin

We created this website to provide the public with additional information regarding Gastroparesis. It is our goal to connect users with our Facebook advocacy group, “Gastroparesis: Fighting for Change.”

Our Gastroparesis: Fighting for Change Facebook group was formed to unite people with Gastroparesis and other digestive and motility disorders to work for change. It is not a typical GP support group, as we do not discuss personal medical issues. Rather, we established this as a place where members can discuss ideas regarding our mission, vision, goals, needs, services, and resources to work toward solutions. So if you want to make a difference for our GP community, we encourage you to share your ideas! Additionally, we need you to help us fight for changes in legislation! Also, you can help raise funds! Finally, you can help spread awareness! Please join our main group. We would love to have you!

You can find links to our Community Page and our Advocacy Group on our Resources Tab.

In order to accomplish our goals, we will be sharing many ways you can get involved on our Campaigns Tab.
