Kidneys are two bean-shaped organs in the renal system of the body. The main function of kidneys is to transform the body waste into the urine, and also to purify blood before sending it back to the heart. One of the major function of kidneys is to remove excess fluid and waste products from the body. These excess fluids and wastes are removed in the form of urine through the process of excretion and re-absorption. Therefore, Kidneys are one of the most essential organs of the body as they help in maintaining overall fluid balance, regulating and filtering minerals from blood, filtering waste materials from food, medications, and toxic substances, creating hormones that help produce red blood cells, promote bone health, and regulate blood pressure.
Kidneys are located on either side of the spine at the lowest level of the rib cage and contain up to a million functioning units called nephrons. Nephrons are one of the most important parts of each kidney. Each nephron has its own internal set of structures and they help in taking blood, metabolizing nutrients, and to pass out waste products from filtered blood.
A sign of a healthy kidney is that it filters about a half a cup of blood every minute, and removes extra waste and water to form urine. After that, this urine travels from kidneys to bladder through two tiny tube muscles called ureters which are situated on each side of the bladder. Kidney just like any other organ can have abnormalities of its own such as protein in the urine and having decreased kidney function for three-four months, and these abnormalities are called chronic kidney disease and kidney stone. These are various causes of any kidney disease such as diabetes, high blood pressure. Some kidney problems are inherited as well or they can be congenital.
Some of the common types of kidney diseases are Glomerulonephritis, polycystic kidney disease, kidney stones, urinary tract infection, and many more.
