About The Human Kidney Right

The information on this page is about the human kidney right and where applicable other body parts that are associated or related to the kidney right.


Kidney/Blood Connection

About one-quarter (750-1000 pints daily) of the blood which is output by the heart is sent to the body's "filter treatment plant," where it is purified by the kidneys and circulated on to the rest of the body. 1/1000th to 2/1000th of the blood flow becomes fluid waste and is sent into the bladder for storage until it can be conveniently expelled. This toxic waste is called urine. The paired kidneys in the upper part of the abdomen toward the back balance the fluid levels of the body. They balance the body's acid/alkaline nature and the concentrations of salts, minerals and other materials. The blood is filtered, purified, cleansed and adjusted twenty-four hours every day. Hundreds of pints of blood flow through these organs daily, about one-fourth of the heart's output or approximately the body's entire volume. The blood circulates through the kidneys twenty times each hour for purification. About two and one-half pints of this flow becomes urine, although the amount largely depends on our consumption of food and drink, our physical activity and other factors. The Roman physician Galen, of the 2nd Century A.D., believed the kidney was a sieve which filtered out impurities from the system into the urine for disposal. His idea was remarkably accurate, especially when we realize that the role of the heart and circulatory system were not known until 1500 years later.

Kidneys

About one-quarter (750-1,000 pints daily) of the blood which is output by the heart is sent to the body's "filter treatment plant", where it is purified by the kidneys and circulated on to the rest of the body. One to two thousandths (1/1000-2/1000) of the blood flow becomes fluid waste and is sent into the bladder for storage until it can be conveniently expelled. This toxic waste is called urine. The kidneys are located about two inches above the body's midline just below and behind the liver in the upper abdomen and behind the lower ribs. They receive about 120 pints of blood per hour, even if other body systems are shorted. They are the balancers of internal fluids, so if we overeat or overdrink one day and diet the next, or if we have an active, "sweaty" day, the kidneys will compensate and see that these fluctuations in fluid, salt and glucose are leveled out. It is important to drink plenty of fluids each day to keep the kidneys in good working order. The "kidney" bean is so named because of its resemblance to the shape and color of the kidneys. Many people believe the kidneys lie down in the flanks and are surprised when pain from kidney disorder comes from the upper middle back area. Well, I have "to go" now.
