There are no diagnostic laboratory findings associated with gastroparesis. However, some laboratory findings consistent with the diagnosis of gastroparesis and its complications include elevated blood urea nitrogen (BUN), creatinine, erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), or C-reactive protein (CRP). Elevated glucose or glycated hemoglobin levels (HbA1c) might be seen in patients with diabetic gastroparesis.
