Expert Answer:

In simple words, osmotic balance is the control of water and electrolyte balance in the body.

Osmoregulation is the active regulation of the osmotic pressure of bodily fluids to maintain the homeostasis of the body's water content; that is it keeps the body's fluids from becoming too dilute or too concentrated.
