The full significance of the kidney's role in glucose homeostasis is now well recognized. For example, it is now known that renal gluconeogenesis contributes substantially to total-body glucose release in the postabsorptive state. The kidney contributes to glucose homeostasis by filtering and reabsorbing glucose. Under normal circumstances, glucose filtered by glomeruli is completely reabsorbed, but glucosuria may occur under conditions of hyperglycemia or reduced reabsorptive capacity. The… CONTINUE READING
