The Gastroparesis and Dysmotilities Association (GPDA) is a not-for-profit organization that has been established in order to find solutions through supporting research, increasing public awareness, and providing information to those who suffer with gastroparesis and related gastrointestinal dysmotilities. It is their belief that research efforts directed towards finding answers for gastroparesis, the most common of the more severe motility problems, will help to uncover answers for many other related gastrointestinal motility diseases and disorders. Gastroparesis is often accompanied by other motility problems of the esophagus, small intestine and colon. Gastroparesis represents a clinical syndrome characterized by sluggish emptying of solid food (and more rarely, liquid nutrients) from the stomach, which causes persistent digestive symptoms especially nausea and can afflict both children and adults.
