The Urinary System

The kidneys are vital organs of the body. Their functions are to filter the fluid portion of the blood that regulates the composition and volume of body fluids and to dispose waste. The presence of excess amounts of salt, sodium glutamate, chemicals and drugs can strain the kidneys. This, in turn, strains the heart. The balance between acidity and alkalinity of body fluids is maintained by eliminating appropriate amounts of hydrogen ions through the urine. Uremia results when the kidneys are unable to eliminate waste due to excess waste production. High blood pressure can cause kidney failure. The kidneys stop producing urine due to sudden damage, and this is called kidney failure.
