Did you know?
Your Kidneys are responsible for life-critical functions including:
- Removal of wastes, drugs and fluids
- Production of a form of Vitamin D, which is critical to your body’s ability to absorb calcium and build and maintain strong, healthy bones.
- Monitoring the release of certain hormones that help regulate blood pressure
Filtering Wastes and Regulating Chemical Levels
Your kidneys are sort of the equivalent to your body’s water sanitation and treatment plant. They help to filter wastes and excess fluids from your body which, in turn, exit your body via your urine. Kidneys also regulate the amount of potassium, salts and acids in your body. If not functioning the way they should, wastes can accumulate and the chemical make-up of your blood will be out of balance.
Kidney Function tests, often referred to as Renal Function tests, can help determine how well your kidneys are working. Additional issues can develop if your kidneys aren’t working to their fullest potential, especially for those with diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
