Term Definition
Dysmotility

When digested food does not move through the stomach or intestines at the right speed. Digested food moves through our body when the muscles in our intestines move like a wave to push the food along. Sometimes the wave moves too slowly and can cause constipation. Other times it moves too quickly and can cause diarrhea.
