  29. 3 processes for urine production:
    • 1) filtration
    • 2) tubular reabsorption
    • 3) tubular secretion
  30. major site of tubular reabsorption of water & solutes
    proximal convoluted tubule
  31. Which part of the loop of Henle is more permeable to water but not solutes?
    descending loop of Henle
  32. Which part of the loop of Henle is impermeable to water, but permeable to solutes?
    ascending loop of Henle
  33. What ions are reabsorbed in the late distal convoluted tubules?
    Na+, HCO3-
  34. What ions are secreted in the late distal convoluted tubule?
    K+, H+
  35. aldosterone
    • causes:
    • reabsorption of Na+ & Cl- ions
    • secretion of K+
  36. hormone most important in determining the water content of urine
    • ADH
    • high -> increase water reabsorption -> concetrated urine
    • low -> decrease water reabsorption -> dilute urine
  37. urinalysis
    analysis of the physical, chemical, and microscopic characteristics of urine and a measure of urine volume
  38. specific gravity
    the weight of a volume of urine divided by the weight of the same volume of distilled water
  39. urinometer
    measures specific gravity
  40. range of specific gravity of human urine:
  41. glucosuria
    • glucose in urine
    • usually caused by diabetes mellitus
  42. hematuria
    • RBCs in urine
    • may be caused by inflammation of urinary system organs, kidney disease
  43. pyuria
    • WBCs in urine
    • caused by infection in kidney, ureters, bladder, or urethra
  44. ketonuria
    • ketone bodies in urine
    • caused by ketosis (cells don't have enough glucose to completely break down FAs) due to starvation/diet, diabetes mellitus
  45. albuminuria
    • excess albumin in urine
    • caused by increase in filtration membrane permeability from high BP, kidney trauma, inflammation
  46. high urine pH
