Kidneys filter all the blood that passes through in our body. Blood comes into the kidney, waste gets removed while salt, water, and minerals are adjusted if necessary.

Waste turns into urine

Each kidney has around a million tiny filters called nephrons. You may not notice any symptoms or problems of your kidneys until later stage.

Do you know that your Kidneys…

a) Receive 20% of the blood that is pumped by your heart

b) Filter 180 litres of fluids per day to produce 2 liters of urine

c) Maintain your body’s internal environment

d) Remove harmful wastes from your body via urine

e) Produce certain essential hormones
