Urinary Hormones

1. Tell us about 3 urinary hormones.

I. Choose one (1) hormone from the RAA system (Renin, Angiotensin II or Aldosterone)

II. Choose either Antidiuretic Hormone or Parathyroid hormone

III. And everyone will discuss Atrial Natriuretic peptide

2. For each of your 3 chosen hormones, tell me: 1) What triggers its release? 2) The specific part (s) of a nephron it affects and HOW?

Fluid Balance

Swelling occurs due to improper fluid balance. Apply what you learned from Chapter 27 to explain, compare and contrast Weeping Edema vs Lymphedema .

Be sure to include

· How each disorder relates to fluid balance

· Which body fluid compartments are compromised

· You should also include/define the following terms in your post as you explain the disorders:

o Intracellular fluid

o Extracellular fluid

o Blood Plasma

o Interstitial fluid

o Cytosol
