I have a friend with gastro paresis they can't find an underlying cause... Could it be her gall bladder if the function is 35%?

In brief: Maybe...

Gastroparesis means a slow-emptying stomach.
Causes may be mechanical (obstruction, or the stomach outlet narrowed from healing of past inflammation, treated by endoscopic dilation), post-inflammatory (due to swelling of the stomach lining from ulcers, treated with acid blockers), or neurologic (as with diabetes, treated with rx that stimulates motility--domperidone, erythromycin, reglan, (metoclopramide) zelnorm)
