Were you looking for information about Insulin? Inzulin is a common misspelling of insulin.
 
Insulin is an important hormone in the body, as it helps to remove glucose (sugar) from the bloodstream. In people who have type 1 diabetes and in some people who have type 2 diabetes, the pancreas is unable to produce enough of this hormone. For these people, insulin is taken as a medication to control blood sugar levels. There are several types of this medication available, and many people may need to take more than one type.
