they do?

maybe theres a correlation but not a causation.

only connection i can make is if there's hyoperfusion (ie. dehydration).

Yeah I was also thinking about bleeding leading to renal hypoperfusion, but just wanted to confirm it from other people.

Btw in case you were wondering, its written in HY anatomy.

Really? but i guess it would have to be a massive bleeding like a posterior duodenal wall perforation eroding the gastroduodenal artery or smthing.. LOL

Or may be they meant CRF causes Uremia and that can cause peptic ulcers .. although im not sure how .. may be because of the toxic effect of uremia on platelets. IDK, thats just a thought

i was thinking something like full body burns
thatll cause dehydration and ulcers (Curling ulcers)

and i suppose the same dehydration conception is what causes hypoperfusion of the kidneys.
