Rapid Gastric Emptying

What Causes Gastric Dumping Syndrome?

In order to deal properly with gastric dumping syndrome we need to understand and — if possible — remove the underlying causes and risk factors.  We need to ask: "What else is going on inside the body that might allow gastric dumping syndrome to develop?"

Accurate diagnosis of the factors behind gastric dumping syndrome consists of three steps:

Step 1: List the Possible Causative Factors

Identify all disease conditions, lifestyle choices and environmental risk factors that can lead to gastric dumping syndrome.  For example, bariatric surgery complications.

Step 2: Build a Symptom Checklist

Identify all possible symptoms and risk factors of each possible cause.

Step 3: Rule Out or Confirm each Possible Cause

A differential diagnosis of your symptoms and risk factors finds the likely cause of gastric dumping syndrome.

Arriving at a Correct Diagnosis

The Analyst™ is our online diagnosis tool that learns all about you through a straightforward process of multi-level questioning, providing diagnosis at the end.

If you indicate occasional problems caused by eating, regular problems caused by eating or frequent problems caused by eating, The Analyst™ will ask further questions including this one:
Have you been diagnosed with Rapid Gastric Emptying, in which food leaves the stomach too soon, before it is properly digested? This is also known as Gastric Dumping.
Possible responses:
→ Don't know
→ No, it has been ruled out
→ It is suspected but not confirmed
→ Occasional problem, confirmed
→ Frequent problem, confirmed
Based on your response to this question, which may indicate absence of gastric dumping, possible gastric dumping or confirmed gastric dumping, The Analyst™ will consider possibilities such as Bariatric Surgery Complications.  Gastric dumping is more common in bariatric surgery patients who are severely obese.
