Cardiovascular System Part 4B: (The Spigot) Kidney Diseases

February 1, 2023


Diseases of the kidney are common and are divided into two groups – extrarenal and intrarenal

In this second part of the kidneys, the spigots of the cardiovascular system, diseases of the kidneys are discussed. Diseases of the kidney are common and are divided into two groups – those caused by factors outside (extrarenal) and inside (intrarenal)the kidney. Additionally, since the kidneys filter every drop of blood, anything that can be a problem in the blood can also be a problem for the kidney.

On This Episode We Discuss:

  • How the kidneys help manage blood pressure
  • The juxtaglomerular – measuring blood pressure
  • How the kidney uses hormones to control water resorption
  • Extrarenal causes of kidney disease
  • Intrarenal causes of kidney disease
  • Some of the main drugs used to treat diseases of the kidney

The host of the show is Dr. Stanley Crooke, a scientist, a physician, an entrepreneur and the father of antisense technology. Dr. Crooke is responsible for driving the development of antisense or ASO technology, an RNA-targeted technology responsible for the commercialization of three best- and first-in class medicines and more than 40 drugs in development. In 2020, Stan formed n-Lorem to use this powerful technology to develop experimental personalized ASO medicines for nano-rare patients (1 to 30 patients worldwide) for free, for life.
