Homeostasis means- self adjusting mechanisms that allow the body to keep a constant internal enviroment.

Regulating body water, temperature,carbon dioxdide level and blood sugar levels are examples of homeostasis- diabetes is a condition where the body cant regulate the levels of blood sugar.

nervous system and hormones are responsible for it all.

body temperature must remain at 37 degrees because the enzymes that control the chemical activity work best
