What causes excessive insulin production in the body?

Hello.. I have been told that I produce too much insulin, and exactly what does that mean? for which I m taking medication for. Will I have to stay on this medication forever? I ve asked what I m doing wrong and he said its hereditary. I think it s more than that. Any help would be great! Thanks!

We have to rule out possible causes like insulinoma (small tumours or pancreas which produce excess insulin). Detailed evaluation including MRI scan is required for further assessment.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
