DUE AT MIDNIGHT: HELP ME!!
posted by My on .
If the process of ion attraction within the nephron is not functioning properly what would you expect to find in the blood and urine?
Tell me more about what you know already? For example, do you know that a nephron is part of those renal organs known as the kidneys? Do you know that an ion is an electrically charged atomic particle that could be either positive or negative? Do you know that opposites attract and likes repel? Why is this due at an odd time like midnight anyway?
Online course, so the deadline is midnight tonight. I did know the repel/attraction laws of charges; I know the kidneys and nephrons and renal organs are all related. My problem is that I am unsure what is supposed to be in the urine. After some consideration, I think it might be things such as protein, glucose, ketones, bilruibin, things like that: which is what a urinalysis tests for, and as for the blood, things such as sodium and chloride ions. thanks and let me know if I am on to something!
The only thing that is SUPPOSED to be in your urine is about 95% water, and 5% dissolved salts, organic wastes and hormones. if you have protein in your urine, you have a problem!
