Small solutes are removed efficiently by diffusion. 38 2 Water and Solute Movements: Basic Physiology Fig. 3 Hemodialysis: diffusion transport (Gambro Training Manual, used with permission) The reason why is that they are small enough to pass through the semipermeable membrane in response to a concentration gradient.
