About Disease

What do the kidneys do for us?
The kidneys are  two bean shaped organs in the abdominal region. They filter out waste from food we eat as urine.  If the kidneys are not functioning well, it can be life threatening in severe cases. Other functions include:

  • Maintaining acid-base and water balance
  • Creates active Vitamin D
  • Releases electrolytes from the body
  • Produces renin and erythropoietin that helps in regulating blood pressure

Very high levels of creatinine may indicate a risk of kidney disease, or in severe cases, a kidney malfunction.
