Our kidneys, each just the size of a computer mouse, ﬁlter all the blood in our body every 30 minutes. The kidneys work hard to remove wastes, toxins, and excess ﬂuid from our bodies and help control blood pressure, stimulate the production of red blood cells, keep our bones healthy, and regulate blood chemicals essential to life.
Chronic Kidney Disease
CKD is a condition in which the kidneys are damaged and don’t ﬁlter blood as well as they should.
Result: Excess ﬂuid and waste from blood remain in the body and may cause other health problems, such as heart disease and stroke.
