Kidneys

Kidneys are the silent partner to good health! We can live quite well with only one kidney and indeed, some people live a healthy life even though born with one missing.

Urine is composed of water, certain electrolytes, and various waste products that are filtered out of the blood system. A major part of this "cleaning" of the blood takes place in the kidneys and, in particular, in the nephrons, where the blood is filtered to produce the urine.

Can You Have Normal Urine Output with Kidney Problems?

When kidneys are damaged, there may occur some symptoms and show some lab values changes. However, not all of the symptoms or lab values will occur. Even in some cases, patients may live with kidney disease for years without realizing it. This is why kidney disease is know as silent killer.
