Renal Decreased perfusion pressure in the kidney leads to reduced filtration at the glomerulus and a decreased urine output. The renin–angiotensin–aldosterone axis is stimulated resulting in further vasoconstriction and increased sodium and water reabsorption by the kidney. Endocrine As well as activation of the adrenal and renin–angiotensin systems, vasopressin (antidiuretic hormone) is released from the hypothalamus in response to decreased preload and results in vasoconstriction and reabsorption of water in the renal collecting system.
