What are some of the results of a possible imparment to the glomeular permoselecitivity?
Proteinuria, and haemoturia
What are some of the potential results of impaired tubular functions>
Imparied concentrating ability can lead to nocturia, and glucosuria can occur if the permeability of the tube is impaired, and this can contribute towards acidosis
What are some of the potential results of impaired hormonal functions wihtin the kindey?
Metabolic bone disease, as the kidney is involved in the second hydroxylation of vitamin D, anaemia as the kidney is involved in the produciton of ertyhpoeit, and hypertension if the kidney is not producing renin correctly

Why is it important to determine where blood appears within the flow of urine?
It at the beginnig of the stream the blood is coming from higher up the respiratory tract, hwereas if at the end of the stream the blood is likley to be coming from the bladder
How can proteinuria cause symptoms if heavy enough?
Forthy uurin, reduced plasma oncotic pressure that is resulting in odema, loss of immunoglobinds that results in infection, and imablanced regulators of the cogulation cascae and therefore the thromboembolic reiisk is increase
