Review for Gastroparesis Patient Association for Cures and Treatments, Inc., Etters, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

At the age of 16 my daughter was diagnosed with idiopathic gastroparesis. Gastroparesis in not rare but it is relatively unheard of for some reason and there is very little the medical community can do for GP patients and there is very little research being done. Armed with little information from the medical community I had to search out to find my own, something - anything, to make my daughter's life tolerable. After dropping from 116 pounds to 86 pounds in a little over 2 weeks I was desperate and went online in search of some hope in a seemingly hopeless situation, this is when I found G-PACT. Without this wonderful non-profit and their community of GP patients my daughter would not have near the quality of life that she has today. Everything from tips and tricks, current news to shoulders to cry on, it has given us more to work with than any Doctor, Specialist, Nutritionist of internet search engine ever could.
