What is the pancreas? 12-01-2019

The pancreas is an organ involved in both digestive (exocrine) and metabolic (endocrine) processes required to maintain normal bodily function. The digestive function of the pancreas involves the release of digestive enzymes into the intestines, allowing food to be broken down into fats, proteins, and carbohydrates that can then be absorbed into the body. The endocrine function of the pancreas involves secretion of hormones such as insulin, gastrin, glucagon, somatostatin, and vasoactive intestinal peptide which help regulate blood sugar levels, stomach acid secretion and other endocrine functions.
