Diabetes & Pancreas - Health Channel


Diabetes & Pancreas |

The pancreas is in the middle of the stomach, next to the kidneys and underneath the liver. The main culprit of the pancreas is a hormone that produces insulin in it, explains Lois Exelbert, Nurse Diabetes Educator and Patient Care Manager with Baptist Hospital of Miami.
She states insulin enables people to break down sugar from food. If there isn’t sufficient insulin, that sugar remains in the bloodstream.
In type one diabetes, it has to be replaced completely and it’s important to determine how it is causing the insulin reduction, she says. **************************************************************************************************************************************************************************
