The Duodenum by kourtaxelberg on 10-25-2013
Ooh, my tummy has been hurting really bad lately.
Hmm, Why has it been hurting?
Well, I havent been eating very healthy. The upper part of my small intestine, the Duodenum can't digest my unhealthy food very well.
What exactly does the duodenum do? The only thing I have heard about it is that it secretes the hormones secretin and cholecystokinin.
Well, since you asked... it receives food from the stomach and completes the process of digestion. It also neutralizes the acidity of Chyme that exits the stomach. It also helps absorb nutrients from the foods I eat.
Hmm... the duodenum is very interesting.
