The pancreas, also called pancreas, is located at the top of your abdominal cavity, below the liver and behind the stomach. The pancreas has 2 different functions: the exocrine and the endocrine function. The endocrine function plays an important role in regulating blood sugar levels. The exocine function contributes to the digestion of the food.
The production of pancreatic juice is one of the important functions of the pancreas. Pancrea juice contains enzymes that help digest proteins in the digestive system. In addition, the pancreas produces two hormones, namely glucagon and insule. These hormones regulate your blood sugar level and are therefore very important for the metabolism of sugars and carbohydrates.
