i need help on the renal equations here
A patient experiencing an increase in urine output among other symptoms consulted an internal medicine specialist. The specialist ran a number of tests related to renal function. Here are some of the results.
Urine flow = 2 L/day Be sure to watch units!
Plasma [creatinine] = 0.1 mg/dL urine [creatinine] = 75 mg/L
Plasma glucose = 400 mg/dl urine [glucose] = 37.5 g/L
a. Use creatinine clearance to estimate the patient’s GFR.
b. How much glucose does the patient filter per day?
c. How much glucose does the patient excrete per day?
d. What is his transport maximum in mg/day?
e. What is the patient’s renal threshold?
f. Calculate the patient’s glucose clearance. What is normal glucose clearance? (see text)
