. Biology and man. Biology; Human beings. Glomerulus. Absorbing capillaries Urinary tubule L Bowman's capsule Convoluted tubule THE REMOVAL OF WASTES BY THE KIDNEYS Each tubule starts from on enlarged double-walled capsule. Blood from the artery flows first through the capillaries of the glomerulus, out of which waste material dif- fuses by osmosis. These fluids continue through the tubule, which is very long and very much tangled. The blood continuing past the glomerulus runs through a sec- ond set of capillaries, which are closely enmeshed with the tubules. At this stage much of the water, sugar, and salts that had diffused into the capsule becomes re- absorbed into the blood urine. And sometimes growth is so rapid during adolescence that the albumin content rises. But if albumin is constantly present in the urine, it indicates that the kidneys are in a diseased condition. The sugar content of the urine is temporarily increased by eating large quantities of sugar. Whenever the sugar content of the blood rises above 180 milligrams per cubic centimeter, sugar overflows into the urine. But when sugar continues to overflow from the body through the urine, a diseased condition is indicated. An excess of sugar in the urine is one of the symptoms of diabetes. Since the activities of the body are not carried on at an even rate, there is sometimes a draft upon reserves—the glycogen in the liver, for example. And sometimes wastes may be produced faster than they are removed by the excretory organs. In extreme cases, failure of excretion may be fatal: an accumulation of uric acid in the blood acts as poison. 221.
