Pancreas Gland Hormones
The pancreas gland, located beneath the rib cage, secrets digestive juices into the intestines and produces hormones that control blood sugar levels and fat storage.
Nervous system: parasympathetic (relaxed rest) dominant.
- Insulin causes sugar to be stored in fat cells. Insulin overproduction leads to obesity or chronic weight-gain, and under-production leads to diabetes.
- The hormone glucagon releases sugar from fat cells and from the liver.
- The pancreas also secretes somatostatin, which inhibits growth hormone, insulin, and glucagon.
- Gut hormones and fat-cell hormones like leptin also affect appetite and blood sugar.
