Pancreas

(En español: Páncreas)

Say: pan-kree-us

The pancreas is a long, flat gland in your belly. It sits behind the stomach and produces enzymes that are important for digestion. Insulin and glucagon, which help control the level of glucose (a type of sugar) in the blood, are also made in the pancreas.
