14 March - World Kidney Day
Your Kidneys Pump More than 50 Gallons of Blood Daily. They Regulate Your Body's Salt Content. While most people have two kidneys, you only need one functioning kidney to lead a healthy life.
Every day, the average human kidney filters about 112 to 144 litres of blood to produce 0.94 to 1.7 litres of urine every day. Your kidneys act like a filter to remove wastes and extra fluid from your body. Kidneys also produce hormones that regulate various bodily functions. Renin is one such hormone that regulates blood pressure.
Risk factors for kidney disease include: Diabetes. High blood pressure. Being 60 years or older. Normally, kidneys are about the size of a fist or 10 to 12 cm (about 5 inches). Kidney atrophy means that the kidney is smaller than normal.
