Metastatic insulinoma is a rare form of pancreatic cancer that also causes high levels of insulin in a person’s body. The pancreas is the organ that makes insulin, and insulin is a messenger that tells the body to break down sugars to make energy needed for daily life. Symptoms of metastatic insulinoma include lethargy and blurred vision when after long periods of not eating or exercise. Treatment usually includes surgery, however, if you have been diagnosed with metastatic insulinoma, you should talk with your doctor about the best treatment for you.
