Why renal is more sensitive to hypotension?
Renal means related to kidneys. Kidneys are very sensitive to hypotension. That is to low blood pressure. Kidneys have to wash out the waste products of protein metabolism. They are very much toxic to the brain. Your kidneys are very small in size, but still get very heavy blood supply. Kidneys filter out about 180 litres of fluid per day. That is the need of the hour. In case of hypotension, this function will be adversely affected. So kidneys secrete the hormone...
