About Gastrin

What is gastrin?

Gastrin is a hormone produced by G cells in the stomach, duodenum and pancreas. Its primary role is to stimulate the secretion of gastric acid by parietal cells in the stomach in response to food. Abnormal gastrin production can indicate cancers of the pancreas or small intestine, Zollinger-Ellison syndrome or multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN-1).

Why take the test?

This test measures the amount of gastrin in the blood. It is typically used to diagnose cancers of the pancreas or small intestine, Zollinger-Ellison syndrome or multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN-1).
