Factors that contribute to the impairment of quality of life in gastroparesis

Neurogastroenterology & Motility Jan 29, 2021

Parkman HP, Wilson LA, Yates KP, et al. - Researchers investigated quality of life (QOL) in patients with gastroparesis and sought to ascertain factors that impair QOL. This study involved 715 gastroparesis patients (256 diabetic, 459 idiopathic) who were assessed for symptoms, QOL, depression (Beck Depression Inventory), and anxiety (State Trait Anxiety InventoryAQ7). A poor QOL was detected in these patients, as shown by multiple measures. The following areas were identified to have influenced decreased QOL: symptoms of nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain, as well as irritable bowel syndrome; etiology and acute onset and progressively worsening symptoms; comorbidities as well as psychological factors such as anxiety and depression; and patient‐related factors such as smoking. In gastroparesis, improved patient outcomes may be achieved by targeting the modifiable factors.
