Beta cells are found in the pancreas within clusters of cells known as islets. In <a href="https://kidshealth.org/ws/RadyChildrens/en/teens/type1.html/">type 1 diabetes</a>, the body's immune system mistakenly destroys the beta cells. Without beta cells, the pancreas can't make insulin.</p> Células betaLas células beta producen insulina, una hormona que controla el nivel de glucosa (un tipo de azúcar) en la sangre.https://kidshealth.org/ws/RadyChildrens/es/teens/beta-cells-esp.html/4f929bbe-c91f-49fe-a21f-265e72f87b72kh:age-teenThirteenToNineteenkh:age-youngAdultEighteenPluskh:clinicalDesignation-endocrinologykh:genre-dictionarykh:primaryClinicalDesignation-endocrinologyWords to Know for Teens With Diabeteshttps://kidshealth.org/ws/RadyChildrens/en/teens/diabetes-center/words-to-know/5fc89723-9cf2-4948-bfc0-c83f09781597
