Abstract

To assess the kidney functions, clearance of some of the substances from the kidneys is measured. The clearance of substances that are filtered exclusively or predominantly by the glomeruli but neither reabsorbed nor secreted by other regions of the nephron can be used to measure glomerular filtration rate. Urea clearance is defined as volume of blood or plasma completely cleared of urea/min by the kidneys
