In this video, we're going to explore how our blood glucose concentration is controlled by the hormones, insulin and glucagon. And at the end, we'll see how these fit together in a negative feedback loop. Blood glucose concentration is how we describe the amount of sugar in our bloodstream. We all need sugar in our blood so that our cells have a constant supply of glucose that they can use for respiration. However, if the blood glucose concentration gets too high, we can start to damage our tissues. So we need to keep a fine balance where it's not too high or too low. If you were to eat a really big meal that had lots of carbohydrates in it, those carbohydrates would be broken down in your intestines into lots of glucose molecules. These would then be absorbed into your bloodstream and cause your blood glucose concentration to increase.
