Insulin 

Insulin is a hormone produced by the pancreas. Insulin controls the amount of sugar in the blood by moving it into the cells, where it can be used by the body for energy.

Insulinoma

Tumours that can occur in any part of the pancreas. In patients with insulinomas, the tumour produces abnormally high levels of insulin, which causes low blood sugar levels (hypoglycaemia).
