For those that have been paying attention, Raven has talked about her disease, Gastroparesis and her pacemaker. Many have asked what it is, is it fatal and how does a pacemaker help. We’re here to dig up the info for you!
Gastroparesis a condition in which your stomach cannot empty itself of food in a normal fashion. For most of us, strong muscular contractions propel food through your digestive tract. If you have gastroparesis, your stomach’s contractions are slowed down or don’t work at all, preventing your stomach from emptying properly. The cause of this is unknown. An example is shown below, this is not specific to Raven.
There can be a number of complications for those who have this. They include severe dehydration, malnutrition, blood sugar changes, and food hardening and remaining in the stomach. Gastric electrical stimulation (a stomach pacemaker) is a device that provides electrical stimulation to stimulate stomach muscles to move food more efficiently.
The condition itself is not fatal. However, if left untreated, the complications listed above have the potential to be fatal. Basically, Raven is not in a life threatening situation. She does have dietary restrictions and things to watch for, but overall is in good health.
