    Kidney is an organ in body of human beings and all other vertebrate animals that perform many vital functions including the production of urine. Urine is the fluid carries various waste materials. A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text.

    The function of the kidneys includes excretion, osmoregulation, maintaining the pH balance of extracellular fluid and regulating the electrolyte content which plays a part in homeostasis. Excretion allows the removal of waste substances or the products formed through metabolism. This waste can include urea, water and salts. Chapter Excretion and the kidneys. Page 1. Carbon dioxide, urea, uric acid, water, salts, spent hormones, toxins, bile pigments. 2. Levels of urea, uric acid and breakdown products of hormones will give a clue as to how well the kidneys are working. Urine analysis will reveal substances that should not be there such as.

      It has been known for many years that the kidney plays a major role in uric acid homeostasis, as more than 70% of urate excretion is renal. Furthermore, hyperuricemia in gout is most commonly the result of relative urate underexcretion, as the kidney has enormous capacity for urate reabsorption. A clear understanding of the mechanisms of renal handling of urate has been hampered Cited by: PDR Drug Summaries are concise point-of-care prescribing, dosing and administering information to help phsyicans more efficiently and accurately prescribe in their practice PDR's drug summaries are available free of charge and serve as a great resource for US based MDs, DOs, NPs and PAs in .

Renal glycosuria is a rare condition in which the simple sugar glucose is excreted in the urine despite normal or low blood glucose levels. With normal kidney (renal) function, glucose is excreted in the urine only when there are abnormally elevated levels of glucose in the lty: Medical genetics.

Potassium chloride was without effect. Effects of potassium citrate on urinary citrate, citrate clearance, and acid-base status tended to be more prominent than those of potassium bicarbonate, but these changes were not significant.

Thus, the citraturic action of potassium citrate is largely accountable fo r by provision of an alkali by: homeostasis, excretion and the kidneys Homeostasis is defined as " the maintenance of a constant internal environment " in a living organism.

Every organism carries out some form of regulation, although it may somehow find a place to live where it can tolerate variation in the external environment.

Familial renal glycosuria is an inherited disorder resulting in glucose excretion in the urine despite normal blood glucose concentrations.

It is most commonly due to mutations in the SLC5A2 gene coding for the glucose transporter SGLT2 in the proximal tubule. Several drugs have been introduced as means to lower glucose in patients with type 2 diabetes targeting SGLT2 resulting in renal Cited by:   To separate the effects of hyperglycemia vs.

Studies have shown that the addition of uremic serum from rats and patients with renal failure inhibits the uptake of PAH in slices of rat kidney cortex, rat renal cortical fragments, and isolated renal tubules of the rabbit (Preuss et al.,White,Hook & Munro, ).During attempts to isolate the inhibitors of renal transport of organic anions, a fraction of uremic serum Cited by: THE EXCRETION OF UREA AND SUGAR BY THE KIDNEY.

BY ARTHURR. CUSHNY. (Pharmacological Laboratory, University College, London.) UREA is often known as a specific constituent of the urine, and in virtue of this its elimination in the urine has been ascribed to a specific secretory activity which does not seem to be required in the same way by the inorganic by: 7.

The basic structural and functional excretory units of the human kidney are known as _____ salts, and a small amount. The DASH-Sodium trial was a multicenter randomized trial that evaluated the main and interactive effects of 3 different levels of dietary sodium intake (goals of 50,and mEq/2, kcal/d, equivalent to 1, 2, and 3, mg/2, kcal/d) and 2 diets (a control diet and the DASH diet) on BP in participants with systolic BP of mm Hg and diastolic BP of mm Hg.

Osmoregulation and excretion (kidney function): Two basic ideas: 1) keep a balance of salts in your body. For example, a problem with terrestrial animals is water conservation: water is lost due to respiration, evaporation, urine, etc. - usually the problem is replacing water: water can be replaced or conserved through: drinking.

The osmoregulatory effects of intravenously (i.v.) administered angiotensin II (AII) at dose rates of 5, 15 and 45 ng kg−1 min−1 were examined in kelp gulls utilizing salt glands and/or kidneys as excretory organs.
