We are pleased to introduce the latest I Heart Guts baby -- Insulin plush! Pancreas has been wanting a kid sister or brother to play with, so we figure these two are gonna be beta cell besties!
Life without insulin wouldn't be as sweet! This plush insulin drop makes a great pal when a diabetes diagnosis or insulin needles get you down. Super soft, super cute 9.5" x 7" x 6" insulin plush toy pillow comes with a hangtag packed full of info all about this vital fluid produced by your pancreas. Or, if your panky is busted, supplied by a shot of real actual insulin.
Insulin is a hormone that helps turn food into energy. After you eat, sugar from food goes into the bloodstream. Insulin unlocks body cells so they can accept a special delivery of sugar (aka glucose). The cell transforms glucose into energy for you to run and play.
We don't love diabetes, but we hope your favorite diabetic thinks this new insulin friend is funny and cute, and will perhaps lend a much-needed dose of humor in tough times!
Because we are total nerds, Testosterone boasts a molecular model beard and Estrogen is sporting the molecular structure for estradiol, one of three types of estrogen made by humans. We especially love the beautiful form of the amino acid chain that comprises Insulin. Get in on this nerdy fashion action!
