For part 2 see NAR 43, 5108. 5. Gastric secretion rate was estimated quantitatively in 7 healthy subjects after a fluid meal of milk protein, fat and lactose. The constant but moderate secretion rate was not affected by the addition of 10% glucose to the meal. Correction was made for duodenal reflux. Constant relations were found between gastric volumes, secretion and emptying for a considerable time in each test, with deviations in the beginning and at the end. Addition of 10% glucose slowed emptying during the first hour after the meal, resulting in a slower decrease of gastric volumes.
