RENAL HANDLING OF SODIUM AND CHLORIDE Sodium and chloride are both predominantly extracellular ions. In plasma, the sodium concentration is maintained between 135 to 145 mmol/L, whereas the chloride concentration is maintained between 98 to 108 mmol/L. Both sodium and chloride are freely filtered at the glomerulus and almost completely (approximately 99%) reabsorbed. 60% of the filtered load is reabsorbed in the proximal tubule; 30% is reabsorbed in the thick ascending limb; 7% is reabsorbed…

Proximal convoluted tubule The entire renal tubule is involved in reabsorption to some degree, but the proximal convoluted tubule cells are by far the most active "reabsorbers" and the events just described occur mainly in this tubular segement. Normally, the proximal convoluted tubule reabsorbs all of the glucose, lactate and amino acids in the filtrate and 65% of the Na+ and water. Additionally, 80% of the filtered bicarbonate (HCO3-), 60% of Cl- and about 55% of the K+ are reclaimed in…
