High Blood Sugar
Pancreas produces insulin which enters bloodstream, insulin allows glucose to be absorbed-glucose stored in liver as glycogen, blood sugar levels reduce to normal
1 of 14
Low Blood Sugar
Pancreas produces glucagon and sends message to liver via bloodstream to stimulate glycogen-then converted back to glucose, liver releases glucose to turn blood sugar levels back to normal
2 of 14
Glucagon
Hormone
3 of 14
Glycogen
Stored glucose
4 of 14
Viviparous
Internal fertilisation/live birth (mammals)
5 of 14
Oviparous
External fertilisation/lay eggs (reptiles, birds ect.)
6 of 14
Variation
The difference in characteristics
7 of 14
Type 2 Diabetes
Body is resistant to its own insulin. Target cells dont accpetthe insulin or have a reduced amount of it
8 of 14
Type 1 Diabetes
Pancreas can not produce insulin-has to be injected

Classification
The organisation of living thing/organisms into groups according to their similarities
11 of 14
Two nervous systems
1) CNS-consists of spinal cord and brain 2) Peripheral nervous system- Motor and sensory neurons that carry info from receptors to the CNS
