  • Gastrin and pentagastrin stimulate thyroid C cells and elevate serum calcitonin levels. Gastrin levels may be elevated when histamine-2 receptor blockers (H2RB) and/or proton pump inhibitors (PPI) are used, or in patients with pernicious anemia (PA). This study was designed to investigate the long-term effects of elevated gastrin levels on serum calcitonin levels. We conducted a pentagastrin stimulation test to evaluate C cell reserves in patients who had been using PPI and/or H2RB for an… CONTINUE READING
