To answer questions about gut hormones and other interesting bits, please go to : http://arbl.cvmbs.colostate.edu/hbooks/pat...s/endocrine/gi/ I have not had my results yet, but I am now hoping this test will show at least something to indicate what is contributing to my IBS problems.Having an excellent gastroenterologist helps. All my test and hospital stay were done under NHS(state paid) hospital and clinic. One of the best state hospitals here in London. So I have no idea what the cost of a gut hormone profile test is. I do know it is a special test and the blood has to be very fresh, then taken to the lab.So hopefully I can report back with some interesting news.[This message has been edited by Adrian (edited 09-15-2001).]

Adrian:That is a good link and one we refer the more inquisitive patients or dieticians to for clear information on GI regulatory hormones. Once read, it will be easier for people to understand the implicatiosn of investigations which have found specific hormonal profiles in the different IBS subclasses and what that can mean clinically. Good post which I should not have overlooked putting here. That whole tutorial on the GI system is very good.MNL___________ www.leapallergy.com

What a great site!I have claimed in the past that the GI system as relates to IBS is so complex that no one really understands it. This site clearly indicates the complexity. For the most part, they are only talking about hormones controlling the upper GI, without much knowledge of their effects on the lower GI.It also indicates a clear relationship between calcium ingestion and GI hormone secretion, and some relationship between coffee ingestion and stomach acid secretion, which many posters to the board may find very interesting.Thanks for the link!

How are you doing now? Did the hormone test show something to help your gut? I wonder if all specialists do this test.
