3. What is the mode of action of loop diuretics?

  • Inhibit Na+/K+/Cl- reabsorption, meaning a fewer number of electrolytes remain in the limb lumen and hence a lesser volume of water is present in the lumen too
  • Inhibit Na+/K+/Cl- reabsorption, meaning a greater number of electrolytes remain in the limb lumen and hence a greater volume of water is present in the lumen
  • Inhibit Na+/K+/Cl- reabsorption, meaning a fewer number of electrolytes remain in the limb lumen and hence a greater volume of water is present in the lumen too
  • Inhibit Na+/K+/Cl- reabsorption, meaning a greater number of electrolytes remain in the limb lumen and hence a lesser volume of water is present in the lumen
