Structure and Function of the Human Body
DISCUSS WHICH ORGAN SYSTEM(S) ARE IMPACTED BY DIABETES AND WHAT ROLE DO THEY PLAY IN HOMEOSTASIS?
PHA1500 A Structure and Function of the Human Body Module 1 Discussion Negative and Positive Feedback 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? Due dates for your initial and response posts can be found by checking the Course Syllabus and Course Calendar
