Brief Summary:
The purposes of this study are to determine whether an experimental drug known as tadalafil can reduce symptoms of dyspepsia (fullness after eating, inability to finish a regular meal, bloating, discomfort or pain in the upper abdomen, belching after meals, nausea, vomiting) in diabetic patients, and/or reduce the amount of time the stomach takes to empty the contents of a standard meal. The safety of tadalafil given once daily for 8 weeks in this population will also be studied.
