Caption: Illustration of insulin and glucose production in Type 2 diabetes. Insulin is produced by islet cells in the pancreas, and acts in unison with glucose to regulate energy in the body's cells. In Type 2 Diabetes, not enough insulin is produced to work with, and moderate the glucose; or sometimes enough insulin is manufactured, but it is not absorbed into the blood and body cells adequately, causing an excessive build-up of glucose.
