PLEASE HELP ASAP ITS DUE BY 4 PM ITS VET SCIENCE 1. What would happen if, for some reason, your body wasn’t able to maintain homeostasis in response to a stress or, either because of a failure in the control response system or because the stress or was too extreme for your body to counteract? Why would this happen? Provide an example of a failure to maintain homeostasis in your answer. 2. Explain the difference between diffusion and osmosis, providing examples of each. 3.Imagine going outside on a cold day without a jacket. Explain your body’s homeostatic control system response to this in terms of the four components: the sensor mechanism, the control center, the effect or mechanism, and the feedback control loop. 4. Anabolic steroids are used to build muscle mass quickly. Why are they called “anabolic?” 5.We often hear people talk about how the body “burns” glucose and other sugars to provide energy, but it’s not as simple as your stomach just creating raw energy from food. Explain how, on a cellular level, your body actually breaks down glucose and how the “energy” ends up in the inner membrane of your mitochondria.

  1. B. Failure to maintain homeostasis may result in a pathological condition.

    D. Blood glucose regulation is not an example of homeostatic regulation.


    Homeostasis refers to the balance and equilibrium conditions of the body of living organisms. Homeostasis is very important for the optimum growth and functioning of the body. There are certain diseases occur such as diabetes and heart failure etc when homeostasis of the body is disturbed. Blood glucose level is controlled by insulin harmone. If insulin is not secreted by pancreas so homeostasis of the body will be disturbed.

  2. D. Blood glucose regulation is not an example of homeostatic regulation


    The maintenance of relatively constant internal environment of an organism is called homeostasis.

    The blood glucose level fluctuates with different body conditions. It is especially high after glucose diet above threshold , but drops  with time and remain stable at threshold

    Two pancreatic  hormones regulates this in the blood, Insulin which reduced blood glucose levels by converting excess blood glucose to glycogen, and facilitate entry into the cells for cellular utilization through Glut transporters

    While if the blood glucose level drops below the critical points, the pancreas is  stimulated  for Glucagon hormone secretion, which  in turn stimulated the liver to  converts stored glycogen in the muscles back to glucose for body use.

    This is an example of negative feed back mechanism, because high blood sugar causes  the release of insulin which reduced its level, by increase it storage as glycogen or cellular uptake, and low levels causes release of glucagon to elevate back to the threshold levels.

  3. For me it's number 4 because it is the process through which the level of one substance influences the level of another substance.if a high level of one hormone may inhabit the production of another hormone.

  4. Homeostasis imbalance


    Homeostasis is the ability of an organism to maintain stable internal environment. It is one of the major life functions. For example, the body has a way of regulating excess water in the body in form release of urine.

    When the internal enviroment is not in equilibrium, it is called a homeostasis imbalance. It occurs when an organism is no longer able to maintain a fairly stable internal environment. Most this results as a result of diseases in the human body.
