  How kidneys fail

  Kidneys maintain the chemistry of the body. They clean the body’s entire blood supply every 5 minutes. Approximately 200 quarts of blood flow through your kidneys every 24 hours. The kidneys have two main functions: excretory and endocrine. Excretory functions include filtering out all the waste products and excess water in the form of urine and balancing mineral and acidity levels in your body. Endocrine functions include making an enzyme which helps control your blood pressure, producing a hormone that stimulates bone marrow to make red blood cells, and activating vitamin D to keep your bones healthy and strong.

  Kidneys fail due to:


  High blood pressure (hypertension)

  Glomerular diseases

  Polycystic kidney disease

  Birth defects

  Autoimmune diseases
