The pancreas is a part of the digestive system that is right next to the duodenum.

It is connected to the duodenum, and when food passes by it lets out chemicals that help your body control the amount of glucose (which is like sugar) it uses for energy.

It releases chemicals called insulin, glucagon, somatostatin and polypeptide.
