Electrogastrography (EGG) is an experimental non-invasive method that reflects the myoelectrical activity of the diabetic gastroparesis (D-GP) and healthy subjects gastric system. In clinical world, endoscopy and delayed gastric emptying diagnosis test are using for understand the D-GP patient's condition which are invasive, quite expensive and uncomfortable. Therefore our aim is to evaluate the Electrogastrography (EGG) features to discriminate the healthy subjects from patients with D-GP in real clinic. Total 25 patients D-GP and twenty 25 healthy subjects (HS) were included in this study. The recordings EGG parameters dominant frequency (DF) were analyzed and compared. The results we obtained from analysis of EGG signals proved that pre-fed (p= 0.048) and post-fed (p= 0.003) DF values were statistically significant between the D GP and HS groups. This study proved that it is possible to distinguish D-GP patients from healthy subject's with a high accuracy and a great success from the EGG signals recording correctly in real clinic.
