The normal kidney can increase its rate of glomerular filtration in response to an acute protein load. It has been suggested that this acute hyperfiltration represents a renal functional reserve (RFR). The RFR has also been proposed to reflect the chronic hyperfiltration found in diabetic patients and animal models of chronic renal failure. The physiologic… (More)
