Kidney Health

Dr. Rodney Arthur, Nephrology Specialist at SRMH says that kidneys are the smartest organs in the body. The kidneys have the following roles: they maintain overall fluid balance, regulate and filter minerals in the blood, filter waste materials in blood, promote bone health, assist in red blood cell production, and regulate blood pressure.

To help keep your kidneys healthy, you can do the following: do not eat a lot of processed foods, do not eat a lot of salt or consume a lot of alcohol. Having a lot of stress or overusing medication can also harm your kidneys.
