The Pancreatic gland is regarding 6 inches long and sits across the rear of the abdomen, behind the abdomen. The top of the duct gland is on the proper back of the abdomen and is connected to the small intestine through a tiny low tube known as the Pancreatic duct. The slim finish of the duct gland, known as the tail, extends to the left facet of the body.
Enzymes, or digestive juices, produced by the pancreas are secreted into the small intestine to further break down food after it has left the stomach. The gland also produces the hormone insulin and secretes it into the bloodstream in order to regulate the body's glucose or sugar level.
