Kidneys do a tough job. Filtering and excreting waste products in the bloodstream is just the start. Your kidneys also maintain the body’s overall fluid balance as well as release hormones that make red blood cells, ensure bone health, and regulate blood pressure.
We put our kidneys through a lot, both knowingly and unknowingly, via diet, medications, and environmental toxins. The result can be a struggle with kidney cancer, stones, polycystic kidney disease or even kidney failure.
