Gastrointestinal Dysmotility (Autoimmune Gastrointestinal Dysmotility (AGID))

Gastrointestinal dysmotility or autoimmune gastrointestinal dysmotility (AGID) is a notable symptom of Parkinson’s disease, autoimmune disease, colon cancer, lupus, breast cancer, lung cancer, diabetes, spinal cord injury, and other neurologic disorders. This condition is attributed to the weakening or impaired coordination of the esophagus, stomach, and/or intestines. AGID is diagnosed through an examination of patients’ motility, blood tests, and medical history.
