during prolonged starvation the kidney can contribute up to __% of plasma glucose 40
certain drugs such as cimetidine, trimethoprim, triamterene, and amiloride may interfere with ___ and cause false elevation in the blood creatinine secretion
is often used in conjunction with the serum creatinine level as a measure of kidney function BUN (Blood Urea Nitrogen)
The major end product of protein metabolism urea
the usual ratio of BUN:creatinine is __:1 10
a significant amount of ___ is reabsorbed during volume depletion states urea
___ is less dependant on volume status than urea serum creatinine concentration
may be more reliable than creatinine in determining GFR cystatin C
failure to acidify urine in the presence of systemic acidosis suggests distal renal tubular acidosis
a normal individual excretes less than ___ mg/day of protein 150
persistant proteinuria almost always idicates renal disease
defined as the excretion of 30-300 mg/24 hr of albumin microalbuminuria
for individuals with diabetes mellitus measuring ____ may help early identification of underlying kidney damage microalbuminuria
is associated with the progression of renal disease and with higher cardiovascular morbidity and mortality in patients with diabetes mellitus and hypertension microalbuminuria

defined as more than 2 RBC's per high powered feild mircroscopic hematuria
prototypical cause of acute nephritic syndrome acute poststreptococcal glomerulonephritis
characterized by increased glomerular permeability in excess of 3.5g/day/1.73m(2)body surface area nephrotic syndrome

intrinsic parenchymal disease intrarenal azotemia
obstruction to urine flow postrenal azotemia
condition characterized by abnormal levels of nitrogen-containing compounds, such as urea, creatinine, various body waste compounds, and other nitrogen-rich compounds in the blood. It is largely related to insufficient filtering of blood by the kidneys azotmia
in a patient with advanced renal failure, the presence of bilaterally small kidneys typically less than 8cm implies a chronic irreversible process
difference in kidney size by more than 2 cm may suggest ischemic damage such as renovascular disease
disadvantage of IVP is the requirment of ____ which may induce nephrotoxicity radiocontrast
Kidney is key in making 1,25 vit D
the leakage of protein across the glomerular capillary loop nephrotic syndrome
your kidneys process __L of filtrate per hour, most of which is reabsorbed 6
when the kidney is ischemic the ____ cells take the biggest hit b/c of their high oxygen demand convoluted tubular cells
these cells are responsible for reabsorbing water and other necessary ions convoluted tubular cells
increases with steroid treatment BUN
blood urea nitrogen BUN
generated in proportion to muscle mass Creatinine
lab abnormality of elevated BUN or creatinine azotemia
a syndrome of "autointoxication" that occurs with a GFR of 5-10% normal uremia
