The kidneys serve as the blood’s natural filter and play a significant role in removing the body’s wastes as well as regulating blood pressure. There are two of them that form an essential part of the urinary system.
Although the human body can function the normal way with just one kidney, it’s still important for people to eat right to preserve these two internal organs. Each day, these organs work hard to support the immune system hence, it is only right that we also take care of them. Otherwise, diseases can strike. Common signs of kidney problems include lower back pain, edema, kidney stones an urinary tract infections.
The National Kidney Foundation in the U.S. revealed that 26 million Americans suffer from kidney disease and one out of 10 are at risk of getting the illness.
