Serum Gastrin

Taking a gastrin test is a way to find out how much of the hormone gastrin is in your blood. Gastrin hormone is made by the G cells in the stomach, and it controls how much acid is produced. Gastrin hormone levels rise when pancreatic tumors are present, but this isn't always true.

A gastrin level that exceeds the normal range indicates increased gastrin hormone production, perhaps caused by Zollinger-Ellison syndrome, gastrinomas, or G-cell hyperplasia.

Why done? 

When your healthcare provider suspects that peptic ulcers, diarrhea, and abdominal pain are caused by excess gastrin, they periodically monitor for a gastrinoma recurrence.

The Gastrin Blood Level test is also used to keep an eye on the recurrence of a gastrinoma. 

Procedure: 

A blood sample is needed. 

How does one prepare for the test? 

  • 8-12 hours of fasting is required.
  • It is advised that patients stop taking proton pump inhibitors two weeks ahead of the collection. Discontinuation should be with the treating physician's consent.

Required Documents for Fasting Serum Gastrin Test:

  • Doctor prescription. 
  • A valid government ID.

After Care: 

No care is required.
