Osmoregulation is the process by which internal and external osmotic concentration of the cell is fairly kept constant. The two physiological processes, excretion and osmoregulation are interconnected as they both are responsible for bringing about homeostasis in the body.

Osmoregulation is the process by which the body regulated the osmotic pressure of any organsms fluids in order to keep the homeostasis of the organisms’ water level constant. Therefore osmoregulation is used to keep the bodily fluid from being too diluted or too concentrated. An osmotic pressure is used to measure the ability of water to move from one solution to another solution through osmosis.

Osmotic pressure refers to tendency for a liquid solution to diffuse therefore moving from a lower to higher concentration across a membrane. As it is critical for humans to maintain a regulated osmotic pressure they are able to gain an isotonic solution which would mean that there is no total loss or gain of fluids orsalts into the cells of the body.Rather there is a steady and constant flow of substances in and out of the cell membrane.
