It's made by the beta cells of the pancreas and released into the blood when the glucose level goes up, such as after eating. Insulin helps glucose enter the body's cells, where it can be used for energy or stored for future use. In diabetes, the pancreas doesn't make enough insulin or the body can't respond normally to the insulin that is made. This causes the glucose level in the blood to rise.</p> InsulinaLa insulina, que es producida en el páncreas, reduce el nivel de glucosa (un tipo de azúcar) en la sangre.https://kidshealth.org/ws/RadyChildrens/es/teens/insulin-esp.html/b7f47f93-27fa-48d5-b9f6-660d89e0a7cbkh: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
