The gastrointestinal tract and GLP-1 RA treatment

The gastrointestinal (GI) tract is central when it comes to glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1): physiologically, the peptide is secreted from the L-cells in the small intestine upon nutrient intake; moreover, when given orally in a tablet, the GLP-1 receptor agonist (RA) semaglutide is absorbed in the stomach, and the most common side effects of treatment with GLP-1 RAs are GI disturbances.

In this collection, we introduce articles describing accumulated clinical evidence of the intertwined relationships between the GI tract and the functions and effects of GLP-1 RAs.
