  • Blood glucose
  • When blood glucose is too high
    • Pancreas releases insulin
      • Glucose converted into insoluble glycogen
        • Removed from blood, stored in liver
          • Levels return to normal
  • Blood glucose is too low
    • pancreas releases glucagon
      • Insoluble glycogen converted to glucose
        • Released into blood
          • Levels return to normal
  • Sense organ
    • Sensory neurone
