Gastric Disorders in Women

Because women’s stomachs tend to empty food more slowly than men’s stomachs do, they are more likely to experience the discomfort of such symptoms as bloating and nausea following a meal. In addition, women who are diabetic, who have a thyroid condition, who have had a previous stomach surgery, or who are on certain medications can sustain damage to the nerves that signal the stomach to empty. This condition is called gastroparesis, or delayed gastric emptying. Women are also subject to stomach inflammation (gastritis) and – especially in those who regularly use aspirin or over-the-counter NSAID medications – can experience stomach irritation that leads to bleeding ulcers. All such conditions should be evaluated by your physician, who can prescribe effective medications and other measures to reduce your symptoms and avoid further injury to your stomach.
