Glucagon

A hormone produced by the alpha cells in the pancreas that raises blood sugar levels to ensure they don’t drop too low. In type 1 diabetes, glucagon doesn’t work as it should, putting people at risk of hypoglycaemia. Glucagon injections are available by prescription for those with T1D to be used to treat severe low blood sugar (hypoglycemia).
