How Does The Circulatory System Maintain Homeostasis
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
Depends: There are many systems in the body that need to be regulated. For instance, if blood pressure goes too high you can stroke; if there is too much cholesterol, you can stroke or get nerve damage. If the immune system is not under control, the brain and nerves can be damaged. If you have vitamin deficiencies or excess, the nerves and the brain could be damaged, etc. ...Read more
Depends: If the endocrine system is not maintained well, hormones start to be disrupted, various things can happen. Depending on the hormone you can have weight gain, loss of muscle, increase in inflammation, fatigue, poor sleep. This all starts the process towards dis-ease which eventually if not stopped leads to disease. Integrative medicine works on balancing the body at all times. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What will happen to the body's nervous systems & endocrine systems if homeostasis is not maintained?
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. ...Read more
Controls microbes: The specific and non-specific immune systems work together to maintain a balance with the microbial world. Bacteria and fungi that colonize the body's surfaces; the skin, the respiratory tract and the GI tract are met at those surfaces they do not invade. The micro biome (these colonizing microbes) play an important role in homeostasis. ...Read more
