About the thesis

The overall aim of the thesis is to provide guideline information about measurement of gut hormones. The PhD thesis focused on performing 5 studies. Based on the results I hope to facilitate precise measurements of hormones in blood so that conditions of hormone deficiency or excess can be diagnosed better with a focus on Good Scientific Practice. Moreover, by providing clear quality measures, the quality of previous and future gut hormone studies in this area may be better assessed.
