Biology help-Homeostasis with refernce to blood glucose? watch

    • Thread Starter

    I am confused about this all.

    I know that if the blood glucose is too high then the glucose will be turned inton glycogen via insulin in the liver but how does this affect homeostatsis.

    The websites i go on are confusing so i want to know in simple terms, not complex language.

    Homeostasis is maintaining a constant internal environment. Part of this is to maintain blood glucose levels. This is done by converting glucose to glycogen for storage when the blood sugar level is too high, so it isn't in the blood stream.

    (I think)
