Kidneys are the custodian of the human body, and are located under the ribs, with one on each side of the spine. These two fist sized bean shaped organs play a vital part in functioning of the human body. They are responsible for filtering and removing waste from the human body, keeping bones in a healthy condition and maintain the blood pressure. They are able to do all this with the help of millions of tiny nephrons. With the growing age or medical conditions like diabetes, blood pressure or as a result of some prescribed high dosage medicines the kidneys may start working less well.
It is hard to notice when the kidneys start working slightly less as they do not cause any sort of symptoms. In many cases kidney performance is affected in a mild way but remains stable for many years. But even if one is fit and fine, a great importance should be given to this body part as it plays some extremely critical and important functions.
Here are some of the reasons why one should take care of his/her kidneys:
- KIDNEYS HELP REGULATE WATER
The body must contain the right amount of water for proper functionality of kidneys.
- KIDNEYS REMOVE WASTE
Kidneys not only remove waste but also keep substances found in the blood and bodily fluid at the correct level. They remove excess minerals, like potassium and sodium, which are then excreted in the urine.
- KIDNEYS PRODUCE VITAL HORMONES
Kidney produces hormones which help in regulating blood pressure, uptake of calcium and the creation of Red Blood Cells.
