Asked in Conditions and Diseases, Diabetes, Blood Types
How does a person with type 1 diabetes monitor their blood glucose levels?
Asked in Hormones
What hormone reduces blood glucose levels and what hormone raises blood glucose levels?
Asked in Capillaries
Is there a difference between Capillary blood glucose and venous blood glucose?
When blood glucose level rises the pancreas secretes insulin and as a result blood glucose level declines When blood glucose level is low the pancreas secretes glucagon and as a result blood gluc?

Asked in Blood
Is there the same concentration of glucose when blood goes into the muscle and when it comes out?
Asked in Human Anatomy and Physiology, Hormones
What are effects of insulin and glucagon?
Insulin and glucagon regulate the concentration of glucose in the blood. When the blood sugar is too high, insulin is released to trigger the absorption of glucose from the blood, to decrease the blood glucose concentration. When the blood glucose it too low, glucagon promotes the release of glucose into the blood. So, insulin and glucagon have an antagonistic relationship because although they are both responsible for returning the blood sugar to normal, insulin absorbs excess glucose while glucagon returns glucose to the blood when there is not enough.
