Peter the Pancreas

“Hi guys, my name is Peter the Pancreas and I have two main jobs to do.

My most important job is to take care of sugar levels in the body by supplying Bud the Blood with a substance called insulin.

My other job is to supply special liquids called enzymes to Gary the Gut which help him to break down all the food you eat.

I sit close to Larry the Liver as we are good friends and like to play together.

If you feed me too much sugar I can get worn out which could cause diabetes! Having diabetes could mean that I will need a daily injection of insulin.

Also, when you have too many sweets and fizzy drinks, Wayne the Brain cannot focus and gets very distracted – This could make your teacher cross!”
