PLTW Principles of Biomedical Science -BPS

The students in PBS recently performed a Glucose Tolerance Test (GTT) and Insulin test on Anna (our victim) and two other patients.  It was determined that Anna was a Type 1 Diabetic while one of the other patients was a Type 2 Diabetic.  They are now creating models to demonstrate how insulin signals glucose transport proteins to open, reducing the level of glucose in the blood stream.  They will then demonstrate what happens when a patient has both Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes.
