Glucagon is a hormone that raises the level of glucose in the blood. The alpha cells of the pancreas, in areas called the islets of Langerhans, make glucagon when the body needs to put more sugar into the blood.

Everyone who uses insulin should have a Glucagon Emergency Kit for Diabetic Insulin Reaction on hand at all times to counteract severe hypoglycemia that causes loss of consciousness, or if sugar cannot be given. Kids should also have a glucagon kit at school.
