Cholecystokinin (CCK)

Cholecystokinin (Pancreozymin) is a hormone secreted to facilitate digestion. This hormone is secreted from the I-Cells of the large intestine. It is also secreted from brain neurons. It controls the appetite, and while doing so, it slows the emptying speed of the food in the stomach, providing a feeling of fullness. It also has the task of stimulating the pancreas to secrete digestive enzymes.
Interpretation:High cholecystokinin has not been reported to cause a pathological condition today. Although people with low CCK levels may be obese, possibly due to increased appetite, this has not yet been clinically proven.
Sample: Venous blood from arm. It requires hunger.
Working day: Monday
Result Time: Consult the laboratory.
