Clearance of inulin and para-aminohippuric acid mnemonic

Inulin stays INside the tubules (neither secreted nor reabsorbed).
That is why, the clearance of Inulin is equal to the glomerular filtration rate (GFR).

PAH is PAssed to tubules (completely secreted).
That is why, the clearance of para-aminohippuric acid is equal to the renal plasma flow.
