Renal Physiology: Find the mode of action of a diuretic drug

Here you will learn about the kidney's amazing abilities to filter the bloodstream and recycle important nutrients and ions as well as reabsorbs water to preserve body homeostasis. During this simulation, you will attempt to uncover the mode of action of a new diuretic drug candidate to help against hypertension, and you will test several hypotheses regarding its influence on the kidney.
