Abstract

Glomerular filtration rate (GFR) was increased, and urine flow rate and sodium excretion diminished early in painful sickle cell crisis; the last two changes may be responses to a tendency to shrinkage of plasma volume. Increased GFR during painful crisis could in the presence of decreased fluid intake contribute to fluid loss, loss of plasma volume and circulatory stasis.
