Kidney Information

Kidneys are remarkable organs that play a crucial role in maintaining a healthy ecosystem in our bodies. Often referred to as the body’s natural filters, kidneys perform essential functions that contribute to:

Waste Filtration: Kidneys filter waste products, excess minerals, and toxins from the blood, which are then excreted as urine.

Fluid Regulation: These organs help maintain the body’s fluid balance by adjusting urine production based on factors such as hydration and salt levels.

Blood Pressure Control: Kidneys regulate blood pressure by managing the balance of salt and water in the body.

Acid-Base Balance: They help keep the body’s pH level within a healthy range by controlling the excretion of acids and bases.

Red Blood Cell Production: Kidneys produce a hormone called erythropoietin, which stimulates the production of red blood cells in the bone marrow.

Common Kidney Diseases

The most common kidney diseases are:

Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD): A progressive condition where the kidneys lose their ability to function properly over time, often caused by conditions like diabetes and high blood pressure.

Kidney Stones: Hard mineral and salt deposits that can form within the kidneys and cause severe pain if they obstruct the urinary tract.

Kidney Infections: Infections that can result from bacteria entering the urinary tract and affecting the kidneys.

Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD): A genetic disorder where fluid-filled cysts develop in the kidneys, potentially leading to kidney enlargement and functional impairment.
