What's the difference between secretin and urogastrone? Both of them did inhibit the secretion of gastric juice right?
Secretin/urogastrone: Urogastrone is a polypeptide secreted by the salivary glands and by brunner's glands, which is a potent inhibitor of gastric acid secretion. Secretin is a digestive hormone secreted by small intestine. Secretin causes the pancreas to release digestive enzymes which break down food and help the body absorb nutrients. Secretin inhibits gastric acid secretion.
Important hormone: Secretin is important in digestion. When stomach acid flows into the duodenum (small intestine) secretin is released. The secretin stimulates the pancreas to release bicarbonate (sodium bicarbonate) which helps digest food. It also enhances the function of cck which is important in gallbladder function. Secretin is stopped from working when the ph of the stomach is blocked with certain medications.
Be wary: Most fruit juices are just sugary beverages, providing extra calories — all from refined carbohydrates — without sating appetite. And this is true whether you drink apple or orange juice or one of the fancy new juices like acai berry or pomegranate juice. The added calories can contribute to weight gain and increased risk of both diabetes and heart disease.

What to do if a friends baby has septo-optic dysplasia and someone told her to try pomegranate juice.?
No effect: This condition should be followed by a neurologist or a neuro-ophthalmologist. There is no evidence that pomegranate juice has any effect on this, but if your friend is convinced it would help there is no harm using it and it might be better if you do not say anything about this.
Fruit juice: There are no direct data to say yes or no. Cranberry extract does help recurrent UTI by reducing bacterial adhesion to ureter and bladder. Ponegranate can reduce renin angiotensin presence, and this can reduce BP a bit but can elevate potassium in blood. Both juices contain anti-oxidants, and anti-oxidants are beneficial for kidney disease. However, potassium retention is the larger concern.See 1 more doctor answer
