|Abstract:||Gastric emptying is mildly slowed in healthy aging, although generally remains within the normal range for young people. The significance of this is unclear, but may potentially influence the absorption of certain drugs, especially when a rapid effect is desired. Type 2 diabetes is common in the elderly, but there is little data regarding its natural history, prognosis, and management. This article focuses on the interactions between gastric emptying and diabetes, how each is influenced by the process of aging, and the implications for patient management.|
