Tubuloglomerular feedback system The renal system which filters 150 l/day and reabsorbs 148 l of these solutes and water must be highly coordinated. If there was no relationship between reabsorptive and ultrafiltration processes and they were not coordinated, large swings in extracellular volume and total body water might occur. It has been known for several years that part of the coordination of the reabsorptive filtration processes is mediated by a process called glomerular tubular balance, 17 a term coined by Homer Smith (2), whereby increases or decreases in flow into each nephron segment, proximal tubule, loop of Henle, and distal tubule are accompanied by a near proportional increase or decrease in the rate of tubular reabsorption, maintaining fractional reabsorption nearly constant.
