It is a disease where the body doesn't produce insulin -- a hormone that is needed to convert sugars, starches, and other food into energy. Glucagon is a hormone...

Glucagon, a hormone produced by the pancreas, prevents low blood sugar levels in healthy individuals. It causes...

Without insulin the body fails to take glucose into the bodies cells and in turns uses fat as an energy source. It also has several other anabolic effects throughout the body. Diabetes mellitus results...
