How does the Kidney Reduce the Water Content of Urine on a Hot Day? Blog Intro: For most people, a hot day is an enjoyable experience. But for those who suffer from renal disease, it can be life threatening. When the body becomes overheated a series of reactions occur to help cool down: sweating, increased heart rate and blood circulation, vasodilation and an increase in urine production. The kidneys are able to reduce the water content of urine produced on a hot day by using an enzyme called 'renalase.' Renalase works by breaking down urea into ammonia and carbon dioxide, which are two products that evaporate more easily than liquid water.

The kidneys are able to reduce the water content of urine produced on a hot day because of the enzyme renin, which is released by the kidneys in response to the hormone angiotensin II. Angiotensin II is produced by the body in response to dehydration, which causes the blood vessels to constrict.

The kidneys are able to reduce the water content of urine produced on a hot day by adjusting the amount of water reabsorbed from the tubule fluid into the blood. The kidney is able to sense the concentration of sodium in the blood and the amount of water in the tubule fluid. When the body is dehydrated, the blood has a higher concentration of water.
