    I thought it might be about reducing sugar loss from the surrounding tissue preventing hypoglycemia as the sugar solution is closer to blood/tissue fluid water potential.... but a quick search brought this up

    "Peritoneal dialysis solution contains dextrose (or another sugar), as well as salt and minerals dissolved in water. The dextrose pulls wastes and fluids into the dialysis solution. The solution comes in concentrations of 1.5%, 2.5% and 4.25% dextrose. Higher amounts pull away more waste, which offers immediate and long-term benefits. But over time, the body absorbs dextrose -- and that causes dialysis to become less effective."

    I said something along the lines of the peritonium contains other body fluids so dextrose will maintain the concentration gradient. I wonder if that's enough. Saw the "Maintain concentration gradient" in 2009 MS before

    Just to satisfy a disagreement: On the question about where RBC come from I wrote stem cells in bone marrow but a friend of mine put hepatocytes in the liver because that's where foetal RBC are produced. I argued that it didn't specify foetal but she said that the stem cell/bone marrow answer wasn't on our spec whereas hepatocytes/liver was. Just wondering what everyone else thought
    stem cells and bone marrow is correct. although the its not in the spec, OCR will expect A2 biologists to have that knowledge. they like to link different areas of biology and make you apply knowledge. In the textbook it only refers to the liver kupffer cells destroying red blood cells

    I HAVE NO IDEA??? i wrote about how anaerobic respiration is different to aerobic respiration....so things like no krebs cycle, so no ATP produced in anaerobic resp...IDK

    for the why do you shiver question I put because as fever > sweat to cool down, you shiver to counteract the effects of the sweating... feel so stupid after reading that answer because now it's been said it seems so obvious!

    Im pretty sure this was about anaerobic respiration and why it produces less ATP than aerobic?

    Low grade boundaries for all! Tbh, I'll be lucky to crack 40
    LOOOL tbh I think the grade boundaries are gonna be low. I had high hopes for 50s, but I don't think that's happening haha

    I put exactly that point, perhaps more eloquently though I think it was a logical conclusion to draw for a suggest question so don't worry too much

    I have no clue, i'm just a dumb A-level student trying to get to uni. However, as the contrasts of the two methods of dialysis was that haemodialysis maintains a gradient whereas the other didn't I'm not sure you're on the right track with that answer? but don't take my word for it, i'm not expert on dialysis

    I said because a lot of people 65+ will have multiple health issues and it will be difficult to identify a single cause of kidney failure from a multitude of possible causes

    46 for an A*, 42 for an A, 38 for a B? Not sure yet. Looks like people found it tough though.

    I wrote that it was because people over 65 may exhibit symptoms from multiple causes of kidney failure and, therefore, it couldn't be concluded which of the causes what specific to them.
