Description

Use:

This test is used to find the cause of a returning peptic ulcer and to check for certain diseases, such as tumors of the pancreas or small intestine (Zollinger-Ellison syndrome) or abnormal growth of cells that line the stomach (G-cell hyperplasia). It also helps identify pernicious anemia.

Gastrin is a hormone produced by special cells (called antral G cells) in the lining of the stomach.

When food enters the stomach, rising levels of gastrin in the blood trigger the release of stomach acid (gastric acid) that helps break down and digest food. Gastrin helps the pancreas produce enzymes for digestion and helps the liver produce bile. It also stimulates the intestines to help move food through the digestive tract.

Recommended For:

Chronic abdominal pain/diarrhoea, recurrent peptic ulcers.

Fasting for 12 hours is a must. Alcohol must be avoided for 24 hours prior to test.
