Dysregulation: If homeostasis is completely lost, the body's nervous system and endocrine system would both become dysregulated. You could see all kinds of metabolic and acid-base problems, with altered mental status (delirium, hallucinations, etc) plus blood pressure changes and more. Thankfully, the body knows exactly how to respond to various conditions, so that homeostasis is dynamic, not static.
