How Liver helps in maintaining a healthy blood sugar?

The liver is the major organ involved in maintaining healthy blood sugar (glucose) levels. It monitors your body’s glucose needs and provides glucose from digestion, or obtains glucose by breaking down glycogen, the form in which glucose is stored in your liver. The liver has only about a 24-hour supply of glycogen. In prolonged fasting, when glucose is not provided in the diet and glycogen stores have been used, your liver will synthesize glucose from amino acids and other molecules.
