Is it just the amount of blood in the glomerulus which results from the amount of blood coming from the afferent arteriole? Does it depend on ion concentration or anything specific or is it just sheer plasma volume. Furthermore is oncotic pressure solely just the amount of proteins in the plasma? Why is glomerular  hydrostatic pressure greater than bowmans capsule hydrostatic pressure? Is it just because not all plasma is filtered due to gradients and the way things are? What are some examples of how you can adjust net filtration pressure? I found one saying you can lower HPgc by constricting the afferent arteriole are there any other common examples? Show less
