describ the feedback loop responsible for regulating blood glucose levels

It is a negative feedback loop. Blood sugar increases with glucagon, which stimulates beta cells to secrete insulin when the levels rise too much. Conversely, insulin causes a decrease in blood sugar, which in turn stimulates alpha cells to release glucagon to counteract the low levels.
