Fill in the blanks.
You are taking a test, a really big test, and you have been stressed about the test since the weekend. This prolonged stress causes the 29 gland to release 30 which goes to the adrenal glands. The adrenal glands release 31, which increases blood glucose under stressful but not life threatening situations. This increase in blood glucose causes the 32 to make 33 which allows the cells to use the glucose and decreases blood glucose. Some people have a disorder called 34 which prevents the 32 from making 33.
If too much 33 is released, blood glucose will decrease until the 32 releases 35 which will increase blood glucose by having the 36 create glucose from glycogen.
