What do your Kidneys do ?

Ever wondered, what our kidneys do apart from making urine”
Kidneys are humble hard workers. Excreting waste via urine is one of the many functions they serve. They work tirelessly to maintain homeostasis, which is a state of stable internal environment. They take care of the fine balance of chemicals and fluid status in our body

Kidneys produce a hormone that plays a key role in regulating blood pressure. They secrete another hormone known as Erythropoietin which helps in the formation of red blood cells.
Kidneys also contribute to bone health by participating in a key step in the formation of active form of Vitamin D in our body.

Kidneys are deft jugglers, aren’t they?
