Fluid, Electrolyte, and Acid-Base Balance: Electrolyte Homeostasis 1. Electrolytes enter the body in the food we eat and the beverages we drink. What is the main way they leave the body? _____________ 2. Movement of electrolytes and water between intracellular and interstitial fluid: Electrolytes move across the cell membrane with (along) their concentration gradient through _______________ and against their concentration gradients through _________________. Electrolyte concentrations affect the movement of water between the intracellular and interstitial fluid. Increasing the sodium concentration in the interstitial fluid will cause water to move (into or out of) the cell. This process is called _____________. 3. Factors that affect the movement of water between the plasma and the interstitial fluid: Plasma proteins are too big to move out of the vessel wall; therefore, they would cause water to move (into or out of) the plasma. This is due to the osmotic effect of the proteins, called _________________ pressure. The blood pressure in the vessels force fluid (into or out of) the blood vessels.
