About Homeostasis

Homeostasis is the property of a system in which variables are regulated so that internal conditions remain stable and relatively constant.

The concept was described by French physiologist Claude Bernard in 1865. Many bodily steady states follow this pattern. Blood glucose level, blood pH, and osmotic pressure are examples.

Examples of Homeostasis

  • pH
  • Temperature
  • heart rate
  • Insulin
  • Oxygen Levels
