Regulation of Kidney Function
After studying about the structure of kidney and formation of urine in it, we shall now learn how the function of kidney is regulated. You have studied earlier in this that urine production is dependent upon the filtration process. Reduction in blood supply to the kidney results in a drop in the net filtration pressure and so, urine production ceases.
Under these conditions, a series of events are initiated in the kidney i self to develop a hypertensive state so that there is better flow of blood to the kidney and resumption of urine production.
