Kidneys are very important body organs that can filter your blood and water, eliminate toxins, neutralize acids, create urine, produce hormones, and absorb minerals.
They play a vital role in filtering 10-150 quarts blood every day. It is crucial to keeping your blood healthy and maintaining good overall health. In addition, kidneys can also eliminate the excessive waste materials and fluids from your body. Moreover, they can keep proper electrolyte balance and help maintain your bones strong and healthy. They are also responsible for the formation of red blood cells and the regulation of blood pressure levels.
But, in case your kidneys are in trouble and do not function properly, you will experience the following signs and symptoms:
Pressure while urinating
Increased urge to urinate at night
Pale urine color, large amounts of urine, and frequent urinating
Dark urine, small amounts of urine, and less frequent urinating
If your kidneys are not able to perform their job, they can only eliminate a few fluids from your body. This can lead to swollen limbs, joints and face.
