  • Homestasis
    • Kidney
      • Filters blood
        • Removes Urea, Water, Ions and glucose
          • Reabsorbs Water, Sugar, Ions and all glucose
    • Blood sugar levels
      • Pancreas (gland)  detects changes in sugar levels
        • Getting too low
          • Glucogen is released
            • Breaks glycogen bonds making it glucose
        • Getting too high
          • Insulin is released
            • Bonds glucose into glycogen
              • Glycogen is stored in liver
  • Urine (Water, Urea and Ions) stored in bladder
    • Reabsorbs Water, Sugar, Ions and all glucose
  • Dialysis
    • Kidney
      • Filters blood
        • Removes Urea, Water, Ions and glucose
    • When both kidneys are damaged
      • Transplant
        • Dialysis
          • A new kidney is put in from a donor who suffered a fatal accident
            • Drugs are taken to prevent rejection
        • A new kidney is put in from a donor who suffered a fatal accident
          • Drugs are taken to prevent rejection
        • Hot
          • Vesodialtation
            • Body is cooled down
