What causes the kidneys to stimulate renin production? What is renin for?

What causes the kidneys to stimulate renin production? What is renin for?

Renin production: Renin (R) is secreted by the kidney when it perceives a reduction in blood volume to elevate and maintain BP. This could be seen in appropriate instances such as dehydration or blood loss. R converts angiotesinogen to angiotensin (A) 1, which gets converted to A 2 which is a constrictor of blood vessels. This constriction elevates BP. Go to:

6 wk old, fiancee, me, & ferret rent 1 room. My ferret has fleas. No contact between baby & ferret at all, but fleas spread. How to kill fleas safely?

I would get rid of the ferret, the source of the fleas and then move out of the apartment and get an exterminator or use flea balm to fumigate the apartment. Consult a pediatrician regarding what products are safe to use with a new baby. ...Read more
