Insulin is no stranger to people with diabetes. It is the most widely known hormone affecting blood glucose and mentioned in almost any diabetes articles available. Insulin is produced in the beta cells in the pancreas. Insulin plays an important role in facilitating the movement of glucose from the bloodstream into the body cells where is it used for energy. The lack of Insulin slows down glucose movement and causes high glucose levels in the blood. Most Type 2 Diabetic patients lacks Insulin because they have lost at least half of their beta cells count or activity due to an overworked and dysfunctional pancreas.
