Can someone help me out with Renal physiology?

I need someone to explain what's the difference between Tmax and Renal Threshold?

I need to just get the basic understanding of the difference between the 2, so please make it easy and simple..

Thanks,

If by Tmax you mean, TM, I think it's the same. Transport maximum is the maximum amount of substrate that can be reasborbed before it starts to be excreted in the urine, and renal threshold I believe is the same.
