Is inulin reabsorbed from the renal tubule?

No
It is freely filtered and not reabsorbed from the renal tubule
It is not secreted into the renal tubule either
Doen't undergo extra-renal elimination

2

Urea filtration, reabsorption, secretion and extra-renal elimination

Urea is freely filtered at the glomerulus

It is reabsorbed a bit from the renal tubule

It is not secreted into the kidney tubule

It doesn't go completely to the kidney, about a 1/4 ends up in the gut

3

Is creatinine secreted into the renal tubule?

Yes
It is endogenous, easy to measure, appears at a constant rate
It is freely filtered from the glomerulus
It is not absorbed from the renal tubule
It is secreted into the renal tubule
It doesn't undergo extra-renal elimination

4

how to change your creatinine levels?

Age, sex, muscle mass, diet lol

5

MORD study

Estimate of GFR using creatinine and sex, age, urea, albumin
