Info

Insulin is an important hormone in the management of Diabetes mellitus which is produced by the beta cells of the pancreas. it regulates the uptake and utilization of glucose. type 1 diabetes (insulin-dependent diabetes) is caused by insulin deficiency due to the destruction of insulin-producing pancreatic islet (beta) cells. type 2 diabetes (noninsulin-dependent diabetes) is characterized by resistance to the action of insulin (insulin resistance). insulin levels may be increased in patients with pancreatic beta-cell tumors (insulinoma).
