Ask yourselves… How are the two different? Give examples How are they similar? Describe how they are closely related.

Homeostasis describes the bodys ability to maintain relatively stable internal conditions even though the outside world is continously changing.
Homeostatic imbalance is a condition where there is a disturbance in homeostasis. Most disease can be regarded as a result Aging Body organs become less efficient Internal conditions become less stable
