Measurements were made of glomerular filtration rate (GFR), renal plasma flow (RPF), renal vascular resistance (RVR), arterial blood pressure (AP), and urinary electrolyte excretion. In baseline state, GFR and RPF were elevated at days 8-9 and days 15-16 of pregnancy (vs. virgins) due to a… CONTINUE READING
