Suffering from gastropresis. Continuous vomiting and slow emptying of bowels. Could celiac disease be the reason?

What could cause my 21year old daughter to vomit non stop. She has been diagnosed with gastroparisis. She is scheduled for a colonoscopy next week. Clould gluten or ceialic disease play a part in this? Does there seem to be a blockage in her intestine this has been going on for 2 months. She also has slow stomac empting 7%.

Thanks for posting your query.
I am Dr.R.K and I am pleased to assist you.

No Celiac disease does not lead to gastroparesis. It does not play a role in gastroparesis.
Diabetes is a common cause of gastroparesis. Sometimes no reason could be found.
She can take prokinetic medications for relief.
I hope that answers your question.
