The Association Between Gastrin and Glucose Serum Concentration Abstract #1145

Introduction: Gastrin is an early incretin candidate, since it is released by oral glucose and potentiates the glucose- induced insulin secretion. It has been shown that only in hypoglycemic or hyperglycemic conditions gastrin release is influenced by changes in blood glucose and insulin concentrations.
Aim(s): To evaluate whether there is a relation between fasting serum glucose and serum gastrin concentrations.
Materials and methods: Gastrin and glucose levels and HbA1c were measured in 134 blood samples. We studied gastrin serum concentrations dividing the samples in 3 subgroups with glucose concentrations <100mg/dl, 101-200mg/dl, >201mg/dl, and in 3 subgroups with HbA1c <5.7%, 5.7-6.4%, >6.5%.

#1935 Prevalence of Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Neoplasms with Serotonin Secretion
Introduction: Pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms (pNENs) are rare neoplasms and represent 1-2% of all pancreatic neoplasms. These tumors can secrete a variety of hormonally active substances producing distinct clinical symptoms, or can be clinically non-functioning. Pancreatic NENs that secrete serotonin are extremely rare, but their prevalence has not been explored adequately.

Introduction: Gastrin and chromogranin A (CgA) levels have been tested for the diagnosis of enterochromaffin-like cell hyperplasia (ECLH), in patients with type 1 diabetes and autoimmune atrophic gastritis but there are no data for patients with Hashimoto's thyroiditis (HT).

#267 Plasma Somatostatin: Gastrin Ratio Improves the Diagnosis of Gastrinoma
Introduction: Fasting gastrin alone is inadequate for diagnosis of gastrinoma. Diagnosis requires confirmation of low gastric pH. Low gastric pH is associated with increased numbers of D (somatostatin) cells.
