2. Amylin

Amylin is another hormone that is release from the beta cells in the pancreas. Amylin plays a different role as compared to Insulin. Amylin slows down the release of glucose into the blood after meals by delaying the emptying of food in the stomach and producing the feeling of fullness. Most diabetic patients, including both type 1 and 2 diabetes, are deficient in Amylin.

3. Glucagon

Glucagon is another hormone which affects blood sugar control that is produced in the pancreas. Unlike Insulin and Amylin, Glucagon is produced in the alpha cells of the pancreas. It is responsible for the breakdown and release of glucose found in the liver and muscles to fuel the body with energy when there is no food in the stomach.
