Adrenocortical Function in Completely Nephrectomized Patients


The concentration of Cortisol was studied in plasma of normal subjects and of totally nephrectomized patients. The results indicate that a normal circadian rhythm was maintained in nephrectomized patients as well as in healthy subjects. The concentration of Cortisol is markedly affected during the initial stages and after the termination of hemodialysis. These variations are most probably due to stress and changes in the volume of circulating blood.
