Drinking alcohol inhibits ADH secretion. What effect will drinking a beer have on the permeability of kidney tubules to sodium? To water?

Summary Introduction

To explain: What effect will drinking a beer have on the permeability of kidney tubules to sodium and water.

Concept introduction: Hormone is important to regulate the urine’s concentration and its composition. A beer contains 4-8 % of alcohol. Alcohol prevents the secretion of antidiuretic hormone (ADH) which functions in water reabsorption.

Explanation

Distal tubule and collecting tubule are part of nephron. ADH is a hormone that increases the reabsorption of the water through passive transport protein called aquaporins. ADH binds to the receptor on distal tubules and collecting tubules by making it more permeable to water. This help in reabsorption of water...
