D Effects of ECF volume on proximal tubular reabsorption

(1) ECF volume contraction increases reabsorption. Volume contraction increases peritubular capillary protein concentration and ttc, and decreases peritubular capillary Pc. Together, these changes in Starling forces in peritubular capillary blood cause an increase in proximal tubular reabsorption.

(2) ECF volume expansion decreases reabsorption. Volume expansion decreases peritubular capillary protein concentration and ttc, and increases Pc. Together, these changes in Starling forces in peritubular capillary blood cause a decrease in proximal tubular reabsorption.

Diabetes 2

Diabetes 2

Diabetes is a disease that affects the way your body uses food. Normally, your body converts sugars, starches and other foods into a form of sugar called glucose. Your body uses glucose for fuel. The cells receive the glucose through the bloodstream. They then use insulin a hormone made by the pancreas to absorb the glucose, convert it into energy, and either use it or store it for later use.
