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?
