Sun and Dr. Richard McCallum were in Philadelphia last week presenting their work called "Central and Peripheral Effects of Transcutaneous Acupuncuture Therapy for Nausea in Patients With Diabetic Gastroparesis" to more than 10,000 gastroenterologists from around the world at the annual meeting of the American College of Gastroenterology.
...
"We turned up the current so the patient feels tingling or vibration in their fingers," said McCallum, professor and chairman of the Department of Internal Medicine at TTUHSC.
...
"One theory is the waves send a message up the nerves that eventually go to the brain and turn off the nausea and vomiting control centers in your brain," McCallum said.
"The other theory is when the study patients were taking the needle-less treatment, it augmented the function of the vagus nerve, which is a very crucial nerve in the gut that plays a major role in stimulating secretion of acid, motility of the stomach and movement," he said.
...
"It's not one size fits all where you put the band on and good luck," said McCallum, who specializes in gastroenterology.

McCallum said this device would benefit patients with diabetes and gastroptosis.
"Probably a third of our patients and half of all patients in the world who have a paralyzed or slow stomach have underlying diabetes," he said. "This has been a very big focus of ours because the brain and the gut are intimately connected in every way from pain, nausea to control of bowel habits."
He said this treatment would not be available to patients for a few more years while more studies are being done.
"The proof of concept is there that you can treat nausea with this device," he said.

"Severe gastroparesis patients can feel nauseous constantly and vomit numerous times a day," according to Richard McCallum, M.D., Chief of Gastroenterology at the University of Kansas in Kansas City and an investigator in the clinical studies on Enterra Therapy."For these kinds of patients, for whom drugs don't help, Enterra Therapy offers a new option for relieving the debilitating symptoms and a chance at a normal life."
Gastroparesis is characterized by abnormal neuromuscular activity of the stomach that slows the movement of food through the digestive system.Approximately 100,000 people in the United States suffer from a severe form of the gastrointenstinal disorder.Standard medication fails to relieve the debilitating symptoms adequately in approximately 30,000 of these patients, who continue to experience chronic nausea and vomiting that can lead to dehydration and malnutrition.Because of their inability to keep food down, these severely affected gastroparesis sufferers often require nutritional support intravenously or through feeding tubes to stay alive.
...
"During my illness, I was either in the hospital or unable to move from the couch," recalled Pam Hamilton, a gastroparesis patient of Dr. McCallum's who received Enterra Therapy in 1997.
