Insulin is a hormone synthesized by the pancreas that helps reduce the level of sugar in the blood. It therefore acts as a hypoglycemic agent. 

In diabetes, insulin production is either deficient or absent. As a result, glucose stays in the blood, which provokes hyperglycemia.

That is why people with diabetes need to inject insulin themselves, either with pens or an insulin pump.
