Kidneys and Health
  • Your kidneys do some important jobs to keep your body healthy:
  • Balance your body fluids. Excess fluid is filtered out of your blood and leaves your body as urine. Your kidneys make about one to two quarts of urine a day.
  • Regulate your body water and important minerals in your blood such as sodium, potassium, phosphorus and calcium.
  • Remove waste products from your blood. These come from the breakdown of foods you eat and from normal muscle activity.
  • Remove drugs and toxins from your body.
  • Release hormones into your blood to:
  • Control blood pressure
  • Make red blood cells
  • Keep your bones healthy
