    Incretins, GIP, and GLP1 act on the small intestine causing:

    • A.

      Slow release of glucose by liver

    • B.

      Slower stomach emptying

    • C.

      Nausea due to stomach emptying slower

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    Incretins, GIP, and GLP1 act on the small intestine causing a slow release of glucose by the liver, slower stomach emptying, and nausea due to slower stomach emptying. These hormones play a role in regulating blood sugar levels and digestion. They stimulate the release of insulin, which in turn slows down the release of glucose from the liver. They also slow down the emptying of the stomach, allowing for better absorption of nutrients. However, this can also lead to a feeling of nausea due to the delayed emptying of the stomach. Therefore, all of the given options are correct.
