AGID: Laboratory Findings

Slide 7

April 2012

So, how are patients with AGID, or autoimmune gastrointestinal dysmotility, identified and evaluated? Since many of the symptoms that I mentioned above are quite nonspecific, when the history is suggestive of a gastrointestinal dysmotility disorder, abnormalities can be objectively documented with further testing. Abnormalities may include slow emptying on a gastric small intestinal or colonic nuclear transit study. Also there may be abnormalities detected on esophageal gastroduodenal or colonic manometry. Also abnormalities may be found on anorectal manometry with balloon expulsion.
