How to work with Homeostasis: Part 2

Hiccups

There are many old wive’s tales and home remedies for curing hiccups from holding your breath to swallowing a glass of water, but have you ever heard of dry swallowing one teaspoon of sugar?!  It may cure your hiccups, but it is definitely not the healthiest way to do it!!

To help you understand how we manage the levels of glucose in our blood, check out Part 2 of our “How to” revision guide on Homeostasis. This guide concentrates on blood glucose regulation in the body.

It explains:

  • Why we need to maintain the levels of glucose in our blood
  • How our body can detect changes in glucose levels
  • How our body responds to either an increase or decrease in blood glucose levels
  • What happens when our body cannot manage glucose levels effectively anymore
  • How sufferers of Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes can manage the disease
  •  

    This will help if you are studying for GCSEs, and is also suitable for A Level students, as sections of the guide go “beyond GCSE”. It includes some example GCSE and A Level questions with answers at the end, so you can check your understanding of blood glucose regulation.
