Concept

Problem: Indicate whether each of the following would increase or decrease urine volume.A. Working outside on a hot day without access to drinking water B. Developing diabetes C. Increasing the permeability of the collecting duct to water D. Drinking a large volume of water during a day when you rested and stayed inside E. Overexpression of aquaporins F. Taking a diuretic G. Decreased cAMP levels in collecting duct cells

FREE Expert Solution

A. Working outside on a hot day without access to drinking water → Decrease Urine Volume

No access to water will decrease urine volume.


B. Developing diabetes → Increase Urine Volume

High amounts of glucose collects in the tubules, increasing urine volume.
