Abstract

1. The composition of renal tissue was determined in rats before and immediately after intravenous infusion of dextrose (2·5 g/100 ml.) in amounts sufficient to administer a positive fluid load of 4% body weight over 2 hr. The rats were classified into three groups, according to the preinfusion urine osmolality: hydropaenia, normal and moderately diuretic (over 2400, 800-1500 and below 800 μ-osmoles/g H2O, respectively).
