Functional Immotility

My step daughter has just been diagnosed with this at the age of 33. We wish to find out more and ways we can help. It has been suggested by someone online that she has gastroparesis. Is this the same thing? She has also been told that she is dieing. We are looking for any suggestions on how we can help her. Any known cure or what is the best treatment. Would very much appreciate if anyone could give us any feed back. Thankyou.

I think she should contact her doctor/specialist for some information to help understand what is going on. Here are some links that may be helpful to you and your step-daughter. I wish you both the best.

Functional Immotility isn't the same as gastroparesis.
The treatment of such can be combining sugar with white vinegar at a rate of half-and-half or related to such treatment. The effective dosage for an average human (150cm by 45cm by 70cm) is around 5L per day. That is, if it is only gastroparesis with some diagnostics of functional immotility.
