Question Description

The human body is very complex and seeks to maintain a constant internal environment. This state of dynamic equilibrium is called homeostasis. Some diseases such as diabetes can impact the body's ability to maintain homeostasis. To maintain a relatively constant internal environment, the human body uses negative and positive feedback.

For your initial post, answer the following question:

  • As a medical professional, how would you explain the role negative and positive feedback plays in maintaining homeostasis to a newly diagnosed diabetic patient?

For your reply post, consider and address the following questions:

  • What do you think about your classmate's explanation of negative and positive feedback? Is there anything else you would have discussed regarding homeostasis with the patient?
  • Is it important to discuss which organ system(s) are impacted by diabetes? If so, which organ systems are impacted and what role do they play in homeostasis?
