go through one


1

Use as an intermediary, as in Bob can't release that; you'll have to go through the main office. Also see go through channels.

2

Also, go right through one (like a dose of salts). Be rapidly excreted without being digested. For example, I don't know why, but Thai cooking goes right through me, or That banana drink went through Dad like a dose of salts.
