Kidney Disorder
• Nepthritis • Kidney Stones
KIdney Kidneys are bean-shaped organs, each about the size of a fist. They are located near the middle of our back, just below the rib cage. The kidneys are sophisticated reprocessing machines. Every day, our kidneys process about 200 quarts of blood to sift out about 2 quarts of waste products and extra water. The waste and extra water become urine, which flows to the bladder through tubes called ureters. The bladder stores urine until you go to the bathroom.

The wastes in the blood come from the normal breakdown of active tissues and from the food we eat. The body uses the food for energy and self-repair. After the body has taken what it needs from the food, waste is sent to the blood. If our kidneys did not remove these wastes, the wastes would build up in the blood and damage our body.

The actual filtering occurs in tiny units inside the kidneys called nephrons. Every kidney has about a million nephrons. A complicated chemical exchange takes place, as waste materials and water leave your blood and enter your urinary system.

At first, the tubules receive a combination of waste materials and chemicals that the body can still use.The kidneys measure out chemicals like sodium, phosphorus, and potassium and release them back to the blood to return to the body. In this way, our kidneys regulate the body’s level of these substances. The right balance is necessary for life, but excess levels can be harmful.

The kidneys develope various problems and attack the nephrons, causing them to lose their filtering capacity. Damage to the nephrons may happen quickly, often as the result of injury or poisoning. But most kidney diseases destroy the nephrons slowly and silently. Only after years or even decades will the damage become apparent. Most kidney diseases attack both kidneys simultaneously.

The two most common causes of kidney disease are diabetes and high blood pressure. If the family has a history of any kind of kidney problems, then the person may be at risk for kidney disease.
