Based on the diagram, which organ is most important in maintaining blood glucose levels?  Explain your answer.  You do not need to use an external source, but if you use one, you must cite the information or it will be marked incorrect and points will be deducted for plagarism.

The pancreas is the most important organ because it maintains the body’s blood glucose balance because it includes hormones of insulin and glucagon. that way, it both regulates blood glucose. The pancreas is very significant as it is both an endocrine and exocrine gland. I That way, the organ can function in secreting hormones into blood and secreting enzymes through ducts.
