Mechanisms that help maintain glucose homeostasis in the blood.

Previous Previous Next Next
Description
Glucagon and insulin respond in opposite ways to changes in plasma glucose concentrations. When the plasma glucose level decreases below normal (right), the insulin level decreases and glucagon increases. When plasma glucose concentration increases above normal (left), the insulin level increases and glucagon decreases. Both of these mechanisms return the plasma glucose concentration to normal.
