Who is at Risk for Gastroparesis?

Question: Who is at risk for gastroparesis?

Answer:

Aside from the underlying conditions that are known to cause gastroparesis, most commonly uncontrolled diabetes, there are no particular risk factors.  Idiopathic gastroparesis (no known cause) is most commonly diagnosed in women of childbearing age, but men, older people, and children are also affected.
