While the fractional excretion of solutes have long been considered excellent research tools to investigate tubular physiology, their clinical use has become common over the last 40 years in the diagnoses of many disorders; however, none have reached the clinical utility of the fractional excretion of sodium in the ability to distinguish pre-renal azotemia from acute tubular necrosis. Nevertheless, there are many drugs and medical conditions that interfere with that utility and recently other… CONTINUE READING
