Diabetes and gastrointestinal motor activity.

Abstract

The gastrointestinal tract is frequently involved by diabetes, especially when automatic neuropathy is present. Hollow viscera motor activity is especially effected; in particular, gastric and small bowel function may be severely impaired, due to gastroparesis and dysmotility, although motility of the entire gut may be abnormal. The present review focus on the various aspects of abnormal motility of single digestive viscera in diabetic patients.
