Control of Blood Water Potential – Homeostasis Ep 6

In the first article about the kidneys, we learnt how blood is filtered and substances are reabsorbed in the Bowman's capsule and the proximal convoluted tubule. Today we will focus on the loop of Henle, distal convoluted tubule, and collecting duct, and look at how blood water potential is controlled. The loop of Henle, distal... Continue Reading →
