- HMDB0002111 (Water)
- Amiloride Action Pathway
- as sodium reabsorption is inhibited, this increases the osmolarity in the nephron lumen and decreases the osmolarity of the interstitium. since sodium concentration is the main driving force for water reabsorption, amiloride can achieve a modest amount of diuresis by decreasing the osmotic gradient necessary for water reabsorption from lumen to interstitium.
