Type 3c diabetes (pancreatogenic diabetes) is a type of diabetes mellitus that is caused by disease or damage to the pancreas.

The pancreas is the organ that produces insulin and glucagon which keeps blood glucose levels balanced. Insulin helps reduce blood sugar levels if they are high, and glucagon helps increase the blood sugar levels if it starts getting low. A damaged or diseased pancreas does not produce enough insulin and glucagon when necessary, so the patient may have problems with controlling blood glucose levels which can result in high blood sugar levels (hyperglycemia) or low blood sugar (hypoglycemia).
