Seriously, Pancreas?

Type 1 diabetes is caused by a lack of insulin production from the pancreas, wherein your own stupid immune system kills off the insulin-producing beta cells. Way to go, your body.

    I always imagine the Pancreas as an old soldier. It works so hard, right until the end. Then it takes its injury and still does all its other jobs as best as it can.
    The worst part? The injury is from friendly fire. The immune system is to blame for the destruction of those beta cells.

    Who would think that not getting sick would come with its own set of consequences… Of course I remember getting sick all the time as a kid before I became a diabetic…

    i have started last year in the month of march but i never thought organs can be this adorable !
    From the last year we are serving for free by providing free doctor consultation 24×7 around the world and heard many serious cases everyday like tons of health and medical queries from the people belongs to different part of this world. Whenever any doctor or any person talk about pancreas, my passive mind starts thinking about pancreas diseases, symptoms and cure. But sir you are great, you have presented organs in such a adorable and humorous manner.
