Endocrine System

This module allows you to explore endocrine system responses to exercise related to glucose regulation.

Measurable physiological variables in this module:

  • Insulin - insulin concentration in the blood plasma (microunits/ml)
  • Glucagon - glucagon concentration in the blood plasma (picograms/ml)
  • Glucose - glucose concentration in the blood plasma (mmol/L)
  • Norepinephrine - norepinephrine concentration in the blood plasma (picograms/ml)

Variables
