Renal Clearance Formula

Output: Press calculate

Formula:Renal Clearance = (Urine Flow Rate × Urine Concentration) / Plasma Concentration


The renal clearance formula is used to calculate the rate at which a substance is removed from the plasma by the kidneys. The formula uses the urine flow rate, urine concentration of the substance, and plasma concentration of the substance as parameters to determine the renal clearance. A higher renal clearance indicates greater efficiency of substance removal by the kidneys.


Example Input

Data Validation

The urine flow rate, urine concentration, and plasma concentration should all be greater than 0.


This calculator provides a measure of the kidney's ability to clear a substance from the plasma and excrete it in the urine.
