Biology B1.2 Homeostasis

HideShow resource information

Homeostasis is maintaining a constant environment in the body.

Hupothermia is the state when the core body temperature falls below the normal range. Too cold; low temperature

Hyperthermia is the state when the core body temperature rises above the normal range. Too hot; high temperature.

Homeostasis makes sure our body has a correct level of:

  • Glucose (sugar)
  • Water levels
  • Temperature 37 degree celcius - 37.5 degree celcius
  • Ions (salts)
  • Oxygen
  • Carbon dioxide

Pancreas (gland) produces Insulin (hormone).

Glucose = sugar used in respiration to produce energy

Glycogen = storage substance made of glucose, stored in liver.

Insulin = hormone…
