Definition The stomach acid test is used to measure the quantity and acidity of stomach contents. Alternative Names Gastric acid secretion test How the test is performed After not eating for a period of time, fluid is all that remains in the stomach. This fluid can be removed via a tube inserted into the stomach through the esophagus (food pipe). To test the ability of cells in the stomach to release acid, gastrin may be injected just under the skin, into a muscle, or into a vein. The stomach contents are then removed and analyzed. How to prepare for the test You will be asked not to eat or drink for 4 - 6 hours before the test. How the test will feel You may notice some discomfort or a gagging feeling as the tube is passed through your nose or mouth, and down your esophagus. Why the test is performed This test may be used for a number of reasons: To check if anti-ulcer medications are working To check if material is coming back up from the small intestine To test for the cause of ulcers
