Hyperglycemia HTML5


This animation illustrates the hyperglycemic action of insulin produced by β cells of the pancreas, during a hyperglycemia.

The consequences at the target organ level (liver, muscule tissue, fat tissue) are:

  • The stimulation of glucose entry into cells.
  • The stimulation of glycogenogenesis in hepatic and muscle cells.
  • The stimulation of lipogenesis into adipose cells.
  • The stimulation of muscular glycolysis.

Click on the pancreas, the liver, the muscular tissue and the adipose tissue to illustrate how these organs react when faced with a hyperglycemia.

Learning goals

  • Illustrate an example of the principle of homeostasis
