Pancreas: located in the abdominal cavity behind the stomach. Pancreatic Islets is scattered endocrine regions in the pancreas that produce glucagon and insulin. Located in the pancreas
Somatostatin which prevents the release of the insulin and glucagon insulin and glucagon- regulate the level of glucose in the blood Somatostatin decreases the rate of excretion, and reduces smooth muscle contractions and blood flow within the intestine. Insulin is secreted by the beta cells of the pancreas in response to high blood pressure. Glucagon is secreted by the alpha cells of the pancreas when blood glucose is low.
Homeostasis is regulated by insulin and glucagon. The production of insulin and glucagon determine if someone will have diabetes.
Pancreatic islets contain two kinds of cells, alpha cells and beta cells. When the blood glucose level is high, insulin lowers it(Insulin), when the blood glucose level is low, glucagon raises glucose levels(alpha cells).
In the pancreas enzymes are made to pass into the gut to help digest food. Insulin and glycogen are made to help regulate the blood sugar level.
Results in Type 1 Diabetes due to lack of control over blood sugar levels. Insulin will need to be injected with digestive pills to swallow in order to break down food in your stomach.
Insulin shots because Pancreas will not produce it. Cannot eat for several days after rupture. Alcoholic beverages increase pain when dealing with pancreatitis, and is not recommended. Pills for stomach to break down foods.
