Autoimmune gastrointestinal dysmotility

How might autoimmune gastrointestinal dysmotility be treated?

Treatment options for AGID are limited and generally aim to the relieve specific symptoms in each person. Therapies that may be useful include anti-emetics (drugs that relieve nausea and vomiting), prokinetic agents (e.g., erythromycin) to enhance motility, and cholinesterase inhibitors. Improvement of symptoms has also been reported with immunotherapy (intravenous immune globulin) and plasma exchange. Other types of treatments may be useful depending on symptoms and severity. Maintenance of nutrition and hydration, treatment of small-bowel bacterial overgrowth, and management of abdominal pain are important supportive measures.
