Doen't undergo extra-renal elimination
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
Is creatinine secreted into the renal tubule?
It is endogenous, easy to measure, appears at a constant rate
It is freely filtered from the glomerulus

It is secreted into the renal tubule
It doesn't undergo extra-renal elimination
