What Do Kidneys Do?

The kidneys are two organs located just below your rib cage, one on
each side of your spine. They are about the size of a fist and beanshaped. Your kidneys filter about 120-150 quarts of blood every day
and excrete the toxins they filter out of the blood as urine.

 Too much glucose (a form of sugar) in the blood impedes the kidney’s
filtering ability. In fact, not only does it impede it, but it also damages it.

This damage causes the kidneys to filter less effectively, leaving more
toxins in the blood that passes through them. This toxin build up can
lead to sickness and cause a variety of issues with the body. The impact

the glucose has on the kidneys is so significant that diabetes is actually
the leading cause of kidney disease at this time.

What Does High Blood Pressure Do to
the Body?
Blood pressure is essentially the amount of force of the blood flow as it
travels through your blood vessels. The two numbers symbolizing
blood pressure represent systolic (pressure as the heart beats) and
diastolic (pressure between heart beats as the blood vessels relax).

When blood pressure is higher, it forces your heart to exert itself more
in order to pump blood through the body. High blood pressure can
increase the risk of not only kidney problems, but stroke, heart attack,
eye issues, and damage to various parts of the body. High blood
pressure can be a cause of kidney disease as well as a result of kidney

If you smoke, find a way to quit. Your doctor has a variety of medications
available to assist you and can also most likely recommend you to
support groups or other forms of counseling to assist you.
Avoid taking painkillers frequently. Daily use of various painkillers can
damage the kidneys. If you require pain medication for health conditions
such as arthritis, talk to your doctor about your medication to see if
there are alternatives you can take that will not harm your kidneys.
