When our blood sugar concentrations increase, insulin is released from the pancreas and into our bloodstream. Insulin moves glucose from our blood into our cells, as this process happens our blood glucose levels return to normal.Excess glucose gets stored in our liver and muscles as glycogen. Glycogen helps our body remain in a stable state of homeostasis. Our cells need insulin and glucose to remain healthy. Too much or too little blood glucose to ....
