The Role of Insulin in Maintaining Blood Glucose Homeostasis: A Lesson Plan Used in Conjunction with the video ''Hillbilly Hypoglycemia''
This is a lesson plan covering insulinÂ’s role in maintaining blood glucose homeostasis. It is designed for high school and undergraduate students and should be used in conjunction with the video Â“Hillbilly Hypoglycemia.Â” The lesson includes review of homeostasis, hormones, and receptors. The activity stresses the location of insulin receptors on the cell and how insulin binding to its receptor regulates glucose transport into the cell.
