Two types of materials make up bone: the axial (or the appendicular). Axonometric measurements reveal the proportions of these two materials. The skeletal system plays many roles in the human body. It supports the body and gives it shape. It is also responsible for protecting the internal organs and storing fat and minerals. It is also responsible for the production of endocrine hormones (a chemical that is required by the body).
The skeletal system is responsible for the production of blood cells and helps maintain acid-base equilibrium. It regulates calcium levels and other minerals in blood. The skeletal system also controls glucose levels and fat deposition in the blood via osteocalcin. The body’s acid/base balance is part of bones. By maintaining these three forms of homeostasis, the skeletal system can prevent the body from decomposing or becoming too acidic.
The skeletal system has a variety of critical functions. They are reservoirs for calcium, phosphorus, and are released into the bloodstream as needed. This calcium is essential for many physiological processes including nerve impulse transmission and muscle contract. Bones are responsible for protecting the body from injury and decay. However, if there is a lack of calcium in the blood, the body’s calcium levels will fall dramatically, affecting muscle contraction and neural signaling.
