If part of the kidney were injured or diseased, metabolites will accumulate. There will be a lessening of the creation of erythropoietin, which is needed to force the long bones to create red blood cells, necessitating the intake of epoetin alfa (Epogen, for example) to artificially stimulate red blood cell generation along with iron supplementation. This damage may also restrict the elimination of urine, causing the organism to start "poisoning" itself. In humans (and some animals), this necessitates the need for dialysis.

The body will always, always try to repair itself beginning at the cellular level. If it cannot repair at the cellular level, tissues will start to die. If enough tissue dies, the organ fails. Since we have two kidneys, the diseased one will fail and the healthier one will attempt to do the work of both kidneys. If both kidneys fail, medications and dialysis can keep the person (the organism) alive. But when medications and dialysis fails to compensate for the diseased parts, the person will die if they do not have a kidney transplant.

If these parts of the heart were injured or diseased what do you will happen to the organism




The roots are the parts that absorb nutrients and water from the soil, so if they are injured or diseased the plant will probably die - it depends on how many of the roots are damaged.


The kidney can begin to fail if the disease or injury is serious. If they completely fail. then a person would have to have dialysis treatment. This treatment is only found in advanced societies. The person would die without this treatment.


If parts of the excretory system are injured or diseased, elimination of wastes may be affected. If wastes build up in your body, key body processes may be less efficient or impossible.


If an organ's tissues are injured or diseased, the organ may not function properly. This, in turn, could cause damage to other organs and tissues in the body.



If the heart is injured or diseased, the organism is likely to die without medical intervention because the heart pumps blood to all parts of the body and without blood none of the organs will work.If minor injury then it will heal, during which period the animal will have a reduced capacity for work.If major, it will die.


It depends on which parts - some people live long lives after a heart attack damages their heart tissues, while others die almost immediately.


the plant cannot transport the water and minerals to the leaf for the production of food and the plant will die


You have two of them, and they are able to take over from one another. So if one kidney is so severely damaged or deseased that it even has to be removed, the other kidney will simply take over. If both kidneys are so severely damaged or deseased that they stop functioning you can live on, but you will have to undergo kidney dialysis in hospital several times a week for the rest of your life or until you get a kidney transplant. Minor damage or desease in your kidneys usually responds well to medical treatment.


It depends how badly the heart is injured or damaged.



you could probably be badly injured but still stay alive


A diseased gallbladder can interfere with many other parts of the body and give rise to severe complications. These include conditions such as pancreatitis, kidney failure, cirrhosis, liver abscess and the perforation of the stomach.


It will be having heart problems, or it might die.


If the root system is sufficiently extensive, losing some roots by injury should not affect the plant. If it is a disease, there is a possibility it may spread to the rest of the plant causeing its death.


it could prevent parts of your body to stop moving



Suffer a heart attack or may cause damage that will lead to surgery



In the case of damage the cells will undergo apoptosis. Then other cells in the organ will replicate and begin to repair the organ. This can take different lengths of time depending on what tissue it is and how severe the damage is. In the case of a disease either your body will fight off the infection and the above will happen OR the disease will continue to spread and (without medical intervention) you will die.


The neuron would not fire (function) correctly. The muscles or glands that they go to will not work. If you have ever seen Steven Hawking, he has a disease called ALS which prevents him from walking or even talking now. He communicates by using one of a few muscles he has that still function near his eye.
