Vagal stimulation exaggerates the inhibitory ghrelin response to oral fat in humans.

Abstract:

Ghrelin, the growth hormone secretagogue receptor ligand, is a key regulator of adiposity and food intake. However, the regulation of ghrelin in response to dietary fat intake remains largely unclear. Furthermore, cephalic elevation of ghrelin may influence fat absorption and postprandial lipaemia. Therefore, the aim of this study was to examine the effect of fat ingestion and vagal stimulation on the regulation of plasma ghrelin. Vagal stimulation was achieved by modified sham feeding (MSF)....
