What does my Gastrin levels mean?
I got my results of my gastrin level yesterday. it was 152. it looked like it should be under 100 if im not mistaken. when i got the result on the portal there was no notes. so i sent a message asking and saying i was rather nervous. took about 4-5 hours before i got a response the nurse just said "did you fast" and i said yes i did cause the dr wanted me to fast to get a accurate read. now its the weekend and im a wreck. to back up ,my former GI did a endoscope last june said "linear endrocine cell with possibly autoimmune gastritis" he never did the antibody bloodwork i just got all the other bloodwork recently done. when i saw this new GI a month ago he said the antibody bloodwork was normal he doubt i had autoimmune gastritis but he schedled another endoscope for the end of april. he ordered the gastrin cause he said that was the only test that wasnt done i didnt think much of it i assumed it would be normal like he said all my others were. now im kinda stressed about it especiallly since they didnt respond and now its the weekend. i did just have a 24 hr ph test cause the GI suspected gerd/ silent reflux. i dont know if that could have anything to do with it. i havent been having stomach pains just cant eat/digest certain food but i had my gallbladder out almost a year ago. any feedback would mean so much im so anxious!cthank you!

You might be the perfect person to answer some questions I have my quack of a gi said endoscope every 5 yrs no I didn't like that maybe you can help me as far as my gastrin level dr just dropped the ball again not o ly do I have to try to find a new gi but I might file a complaint against this one.
I am losing my mind. You are from the NETS group that I was emailing with. Am I correct? Sorry, brain fog plus the holiday! LOL

Anytime! Just shoot me an email. I just got busy with end of year medical stuff plus the holidays. But anything you want to ask or vent, just email me.
No, @eileenb1022, I am not saying that high gastrin levels indicate cancer. I had cancer, but never had high gastrin levels.
I think I lost your email if you still have mine pls email me thanks
