Anyone know how a molecule of urea gets from the liver to the kidney in the blood? It doesn't just travel as a molecule of urea does it? Or does it? lol Sorry I'm confusing myself

I THINK it does actually. I think it's in the plasma... My textbook doesn't say so in as many words but it does mention ' levels of blood ammonia and urea' so I would tend to take that as a yes, urea does travel through the blood in its molecular form. But can't confirm for certain!
