The capacity of the kidney to adjust to various stressful conditions has been studied in patients with severe chronic renal insufficiency, secondary to chronic renal disease.
Changes in excretion of water, sodium, and potassium have been studied in relation to output of inulin and sodium para-aminohippurate during abdominal compression or assumption of the upright position. The results indicate a much more pronounced ability to alter urinary composition and volume than is evident clinically.
