9% NaCl. Why was saline used instead of water? Di Abietes has an osmotic diuresis. Because her blood levels of glucose and ketone bodies are so high, these compounds are passing from the blood into the glomerular filtrate in the kidneys and then into the urine. As a consequence of the high osmolality of the glomerular filtrate, much more water is being excreted in the urine than usual. Thus, Di has polyuria (increased urine volume). As a result of water lost from the blood into the urine, water passes from inside cells into the interstitial space and into the blood, resulting in an intracellular dehydration.

39 mg/dL is the common way clinicians in the United States express blood glucose concentration. 48 g/L. 038 M, or 38 mM. 394 inches 4 Water, Acids, Bases, and Buffers Approximately 60% of our body is water. It acts as a solvent for the substances we need, such as Kϩ, glucose, adenosine triphosphate (ATP), and proteins. It is important for the transport of molecules and heat. Many of the compounds produced in the body and dissolved in water contain chemical groups that act as acids or bases, releasing or accepting hydrogen ions.

Starvation. When we fast for 3 or more days, we are in the starved state. Muscle continues to burn fatty acids but decreases its use of ketone bodies. As a result, the concentration of ketone bodies rises in the blood to a level at which the brain begins to oxidize them for energy. The brain then needs less glucose, so the liver decreases its rate of gluconeogenesis. Consequently, less protein in muscle and other tissues is degraded to supply amino acids for gluconeogenesis, Protein sparing preserves vital functions for as long as possible.
