Also called: renal function
Although kidneys are relatively small (each one is about the size of your fist), when they are healthy, they process 100% of the body’s blood supply about every 5 minutes.
Kidneys also perform many important functions. They clean waste from the blood, manage fluid in the body, control blood pressure, make red blood cells and balance acidity and mineral composition.
