Just like you would prefer to have filtered water when you go to a restaurant or even at home, as you would want to protect your body from harmful substances, your body has its own filtration system. The Kidneys.
The main function of your kidneys is to filter the blood and remove any kind of toxins in it and then once it is free of any harmful substances, it is distributed all over your body. Whatever toxins your kidneys remove from your blood, they send it to the bladder which is then excreted out of your body as urine.
Just like every other organ in your body can be subjected to damage and diseases, the kidneys can get affected too. If the kidney fails, which happens when your kidneys lose the ability to filter the blood, the toxins in the unfiltered blood spread all across your body and affects each and every organ gradually.
The factors which affect your kidneys are:
- Environmental factors
- Acute Diseases
What are the causes of kidney diseases?
When it comes to the causes of kidney, there are mainly two. One of the most common causes is diabetes and the other is high blood pressure.
Other causes of kidney diseases are:
- Loss of blood flow to the kidneys
- Glomerulonephritis: This condition occurs when the filtration units of the kidneys gets inflamed.
