Thanks for info ...

It seems that you have Diabetic Gastropathy in this case because of Diabetes intestinal motility is effected and constipation is the main feature .

It usually not responds to ordinary treatment .

You need pills like Tab Domperidone or Tab Erythromycin to enhance intestinal motility .

You need to consult Diabetologist for this issue , he is the right man who will help you out .

Please leave positive feedback for me .

If you have further quires let me know .
