Certainly we can help you, but I'm sure you don't just want the answers giving to you.

What functions of the kidney and liver have you learnt so far which could be related to homeostatis.

kidney's removal of urea helps maintain homeostasis

the liver digestive function, producing bile

the skin regulating temperature, removing toxins through perspiration, vitamin and mineral synthesis

the lungs elimination co2

Brilliant! This is very much on the right lines. Think about some other functions of these organs.

The kidney plays a role in filtering drugs from the blood etc - 'renal clearance' is a term you often hear about drugs being eliminated from the body. The kidneys also selectively reabsorb filtered ions like calcium, sodium, chloride and potassium, all of which have to be maintained within tight limits in the blood for homeostasis.

Likewise, the liver plays a major role in detoxification. It's also a large, metabolically active organ.

There's a really good role in homeostasis for the lungs, apart from the obvious. If I say 'blood pressure', you can do the necessary research.

Does this help a bit? Get back to me if you need more help or want to post what you've got so far.
