Whenever you see or hear the word renal, you will know the subject is about kidneys. The kidneys are two bean-shaped organs about five-inches long, three-inches wide and one-inch thick located in your back on each side of your spine.

The basic function of kidneys begins when you eat and drink. After the body takes the nutrients it needs, the extras become wastes. Some of the waste winds up in the blood and needs to be filtered out.

The extra fluid and waste becomes urine and travels from the kidneys down the ureters to the bladder until eliminated through the urethra. Removing waste is only one job of the kidneys. In addition to filtering, the kidneys monitor the levels of chemicals, salts and acids in the blood. Inside the nephrons are sensors that keep track of sodium , phosphorus , calcium and potassium.
