Diabetics and Pancreas

The pancreas is the organ which produces insulin, one the main hormones that helps to regulate blood glucose levels. The pancreas is responsible for producing insulin. The cells which produce insulin are beta cells. These cells are distributed in a cluster of cells in the pancreas called the Islets of Langerhans. In type 1 diabetes, the beta cells that produce insulin are attacked by the body’s immune system. In type 2 diabetes, the body builds up resistance to insulin and more insulin is needed to bring down blood glucose levels. As a result the pancreas needs to produce more insulin than it would normally need to.
