      Hormones are the chemicals in our bodies that make us do certain things, like grow up! Hormones tell your body when you should be turning in to an adult. Then it starts to change the shape of your body or make you grow. Insulin is a special hormone that regulates the amount of sugar in your blood. The sugar is called glucose and is the body’s main source of fuel.
