How do the waste products from the body get to the kidneys?
Waste products from your body are poured in the blood. Nitrogenous waste products are very dangerous to the brain. They must be eliminated very fast. Your body have very effective mechanism for the same. 20 % of the cardiac out put goes to kidneys. This is very heavy load for small sized kidneys. By repeated blood circulation the waste products go to the kidneys very easily. Kidneys filter about 180 liters of fluid / day from this cardiac out put. Most of the fluid is reabsorbed. You get only one to three liters of urine per day normally. Lot of energy is spent in this process. Nature could have developed the mechanism like lungs to filter the blood. Total cardiac out put passes from the lungs. But then any kidney disease would have killed you very easily.

Why is it important that blood be filtered by the kidney?
Blood contains waste products. The kidneys are two of three organs that remove waste products from the blood. (The liver is the third. Actually, the liver filters byproducts of various compounds, such as alcohol, producing other, more useful products, such as sugar. It also produces bile, used in digestion.) Without the kidneys, these waste products would accumulate and poison us. The resulting output of the kidneys is urine, which is accumulated in the bladder for periodic voiding by the process known (scientifically) as micuration, otherwise known as urination.

Asked in Health
List three functions of the kidneys?
The kidneys are a pair of bean shaped organs located in the abdominal cavity which are red brown in colour. The kidneys are an important part of the urinary system. Keeping your kidneys healthy is paramount to promote good health. Having damaged or poorly functioning kidneys may have negative health consequences and complications. I have listed the three main functions of the human kidneys below: 1. By removing waste and water from the blood. 2. Balancing chemicals in the body. 3. Converting waste products into urine so they can be expelled from the urethra. Once again, the kidneys are a major part of our urinary system and must therefore be taken care off. This includes incorporating a healthy diet, drinking plenty of water, keeping up with fitness and reporting any concerns to your doctor.
