Insulin

Diabetes is a metabolic disorder characterized by high blood sugar levels that result from a problem with insulin function. Either your body does not produce insulin, which is called Type 1 diabetes, or your body does not properly use the insulin that it does produce, which is called Type 2 diabetes. Type 1 diabetes is also sometimes referred to as insulin-dependent diabetes.

Insulin is an important hormone produced in your pancreas that regulates your metabolism by helping your body use the sugar from your food as energy for your body. It is involved in the breakdown of sugars, fats, and proteins as well as the control of your blood sugar levels. Insulin balances your blood sugar levels, decreasing them if they become too high. It absorbs sugar from your bloodstream, processes it, and allocates it to your fat, liver and skeletal muscle cells. It also helps to block the production of sugar in your liver and the release of sugar from your liver into your blood. Insulin also signals your body to store the extra sugar when there is an excess of it in your blood. The stored sugar is released again only when your blood sugar levels drop, such as between meals or when you engage in physical activity.

Insulin was first discovered by Frederick Banting and John Macleod at the University of Toronto in 1923. The Nobel Prize was awarded to Banting and Macleod for their discovery of insulin.
