Brief Answer: Investigate Detailed Answer: Dear Mr. XXXXXXX How long have you been a diabetic, what medication do you take - Insulin or oral medication and how is your sugar control? In addition, is your symptom just heaviness? Diabetes may give some such symptoms due to gastric paresis (slowing of gastric movement) or else even due to other reasons. Please do see a physician at your place who will examine you and if necessary investigate with appropriate investigations. Awaiting your response.

Brief Answer: Ultrasound abdomen is necessary Detailed Answer: Dear Mr. XXXXXXX I would advise you to get an ultrasound scan of the abdomen done to see for any underlying problems. And, if necessary an endoscopy and then advice you further. As I said earlier, gastric paresis is one of the common causes for such problems in Diabetics. Take care
