How Do Your Kidneys Work?
Located at the back of the abdomen, your kidneys are a pair of bean-shaped organs that filter blood. Through this filtration, the kidneys keep fluid levels in balance and ensure that vital levels of nutrients, such as potassium, sodium, and electrolytes, remain the bloodstream. Any waste or excess fluid is removed from the blood and made into urine.
