Example Of Endocrine System Maintaining Homeostasis
Yes: The body works as a very efficient system where one complements the other and when one is out it has to be repaired for it to work in harmony. ...Read more
What are two ways the endocrine system directly impacts the functions of the cardiovascular system?
Many...: Via adrenaline it puts more stress on the heart, making it beat harder, stronger and faster. Nor-adrenaline causes the blood vessels to contract, raising the blood pressure. High Insulin levels, as in "pre-diabetes" cause the release of free fatty acids which damages the blood vessel walls, causing plaque formation. Cortisol and other hormones also have adverse effects. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
ANATOMICAL: Diseases of brain and spinal cord cause symptoms based on anatomical location of damage. Since a substantial area for balance is located in the cerebellum and brainstem connections, disruption here can result in loss of balance. In alcohol/ nutritional problems, there may be midline cerebellar atrophy leading to gait and leg incoordination. Some cancers have toxins hurting cerebellar neurons. ...Read more
Indirectly, yes: Salt (sodium chloride and others, some with potassium) separates into ions in the body, and these ions play with the acidic and basic molecules in many ways. So a lack or excess of salt can change the electrolyte numbers in response to an acid/base derangement. For instance, potassium usually leaves the cells in acidosis causing an increase; if you're already deficient, that may not be noticeable. ...Read more
Thats a big question: That's a big question that people dedicate their lives to study and find out. All the systems are important in "homeostasis". Narrowing which "homostasis" to a single function or a specific organ may allow a more specific explanation; but still lots and lots of effects. ...Read more
Too Many to Say Here: By circulating blood and other cells the circulatory system suppiles nutrients, energy, protection & a myriad of other things throughout the body to control the balance. It transports hormones to control all aspects of our body & it also helps control our core & extremities temperature and helps remove dead cells throughout the body. It would take books to say all the ways homeostasis is acheived. ...Read more
Yes: Any physical or emotional stress, if significant, can affect your immune system. This includes lack of sleep, anxiety, emotional distress, etc. If you are having difficulty sleeping, try 20-30 minutes of exercise a couple of hours before bed. Melatonin is also a safe otc supplement that helps some people adjust their day/night cycle. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hows does the cardiovascular system and the respiratory system work together to maintain homeostasis?
Beautifully: Your body uses oxygen for fuel and produces carbon dioxide as waste. These gases circulate in the blood, which is pumped by the heart to the lungs (and the rest of the body). In the lungs, oxygen you breathe in enters the blood, while carbon dioxide leaves the blood and enters the air you breathe out. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Indirect : The adrenal gland makes hormones that effect the BP and the kidneys handling of fluids and potassium. But doesn't effect the kidney function directly. Any change in BP that is significant can effect the kidney either lower or higher. So thought the adrenals sit on top of the kidney it doesn't control the GFR. ...Read more
That's silly: Please forgive my frankness. The immune system is enormously complex, and anyone wishing to publish a junk paper can demonstrate that something impacts some immune cell in culture. Worthless remedies are promoted as "strengthening the immune system." and there is no empirical or theoretical evidence for thinking that enjoying your body will compromise your ability to fight infections. ...Read more
Complex: Many ways immune system is involved. Prevalent theory that "immune surveillance" is keeping cancers from developing in healthy people. That is one reason why cancers are more prevalent as we age. Also why certain cancers are found in high incidence in people with immune suppression (aids, organ transplant recipients, etc). Newer therapies also use some parts of the immune system to work. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
