    Explain why the pancreas is considered both an exocrine and endocrine gland.?

    Endocrine glands secrete something (hormones) into the blood stream, and there is NO duct involved. That is the definition of endocrine function; ductless secretion.
    Exocrine function is by definition secretion of something via a duct.
    The pancreas gland makes insulin, glucagon, somatostatin, and pancreatic polypeptide, all of which are secreted into the blood stream without ducts, and are therefore endocrine hormones.
    The pancreas also makes digestive enzymes, which are collectively known as pancreatic juice, and are secreted into the duodenum of the small intestine through a duct. Therefore, this is an exocrine function.

  • Why Is It Called Non Insulin Dependent Diabetes?

    The pancreas lies at the back of the abdomen behind the stomach and has two main functions: to produce juices that flow into the digestive system to help us digest food to produce the hormone called insulin. Insulin is the key hormone that controls the flow of glucose (sugar) in and out of the cells of the body. Type 2 diabetes is caused by: insufficient production of insulin in the pancreas a resistance to the action of insulin in the body's cel ...

Your cells can't use the sugar in your blood for energy, so they use fat for fuel instead. Burning fat makes acids called ketones and ...

[Disclaimer goes here; you’ve all read them before and know what they say.] I went on a high-fat, low-carb ketogenic diet for a little bit several months ago and lost several pounds. I don’t remember how much of the weight loss came after starting that diet because I was ...
