I am forming a support group for people with either Gastroparesis or Type 1 diabetes (or both) in Union City for the SF East Bay and surrounding areas.

I have had Gastroparesis (GP) for about 7 years, resulting from Type 1 Diabetes. I created this meet up support group out of necessity since there were no support groups out there for people with Gastroparesis that meet locally, and very few for Type 1 Diabetics.

Although my GP is derived from Type 1 Diabetes, the support group is actually for those with GP of any origin (including idiopathic, viral, post surgical, etc.). Those with Type 1 Diabetes with no Gastroparesis issues are also invited to come. This will be a combo-group, focusing on each of these individual conditions.

If you would be interested in learning more about this support group pls. check out the G.A.T.E. website:


From there you can join the group to find out details about upcoming meetings and group activities. This is a new group and we would be happy to have you join us for our first group meeting coming up very soon.
