Gastroparesis Medical Awareness Card


Written by: CDHF

Updated: December 7th, 2023

Gastroparesis is a debilitating stomach condition that causes the stomachs of people who suffer from it to experience a form of paralysis. This means that food cannot move on to the bowel, and the food that they eat can sit in their stomachs for days or even weeks at a time.

People with gastroparesis have specific dietary needs and will require menu substitutions when they are out at restaurants, shows, etc.

In collaboration with the Gastroparesis Canada Facebook Group: A support group for those living with Gastroparesis, CDHF created a medical notice card, for those individuals to have on hand to let servers and employees know about this condition and their needs.

Cards can be printed, or downloaded to your phone. We recommend favoriting the photo in your photo album on your phone for easy access!
