T1 w/ Peripheral Neuropathy and GI Transit Times

Type 1 diabetic patients with peripheral neuropathy have pan-enteric prolongation of gastrointestinal transit times and an altered caecal pH profile by Adam D. Farmeret al; Diabetologia; April 2017, Volume 60, Issue 4, pp 709–718

Conclusions/interpretation: Pan-enteric prolongation of gastrointestinal transit times and a more acidic caecal pH, which may represent heightened caecal fermentation, are present in patients with type 1 diabetes. The potential implication of delayed gastrointestinal transit on the bioavailability of nutrition and on pharmacotherapeutic and glycaemic control warrants further investigation.

It may also explain why my hall bathroom is always filled…
