What is the relationship between insulin and diabetes mellit
Insulin is the only hormone in the body that lowers blood sugar. The pancreas of normal people secretes insulin all the time to regulate blood sugar. Therefore, once various factors cause insulin to not work properly, the whole body's sugar metabolism will be disordered and blood sugar will rise to diabetes.
Insulin not only participates in sugar metabolism, but also promotes protein synthesis, inhibits protein decomposition, promotes fat synthesis and inhibits fat decomposition. Therefore, diabetes mellitus will lead to other metabolic problems and various complications after a long time.
