This image shows insulin and glucose in the bloodstream of a non-diabetic person and a diabetic person. This shows how the blood glucose levels are impacted by diabetes which makes it harder to achieve homeostasis.
This article discusses how the urinary system plays an important role in maintaining homeostasis by filtering the blood. The article starts off by comparing this filtration system to a man-made reservoir that gets water from a small river and is drained by a man-made dam. It then begins to talk about the roles of some of the more important parts in the urinary system such as the kidneys, nephrons, urethra, and bladder.
This diagram shows how the alveolus regulates gas levels in the blood. The alveolus takes in oxygen from the lungs. The alveoli takes in the carbon dioxide from the blood and replaces it with oxygen through the thin layers of the capillary.
This article discusses how the body uses homeostatic processes to regulate internal temperature. It also discusses how the hypothalumus acts like a thermostat for you body when experiencing things like heat flashes, strokes, and chills.
This article talks about homeostasis, what it is, how it came about and how all living organisms use it. It also discuses how homeostasis helps maintain stability in our body.
This is a diagram of how the body regulates blood glucose. By following the arrows you will see that when there is to much sugar in the blood the pancreas begins to release insulin to which allows the cells to take in more glucose. It also allows the liver to take in and store glucose.
