    Name the 2 hormones that control insulin and glucose levels in
    the body.

    I know one if them is glucagon, which is produced by alpha cells but i can't think of the other.

    Please help me

    I think you are thinking of epinephrine (adrenaline), it also increases glucose levels.

    The one that immediately jumps to my mind (although I'm sure there are plenty) is somatostatin.
