The main function of the kidneys is to regulate the body’s fluid balance and electrolyte levels and eliminate waste products. They perform these important tasks by filtering the blood and removing unnecessary water and soluble wastes. Excess amounts of minerals are also excreted in the urine. The complete blood supply passes through the kidneys every hour.
The kidneys are also involved in the regulation of blood pressure. They secrete a hormone called rennin, which causes the formation the hormone angiotensin in the blood. Angiotensin is a potent blood-vessel constrictor and acts to increase blood pressure.
Urinary tract infections are usually caused by bacteria from the bowel that live on the skin near the rectum or near the vagina. Because the openings of the bowel, vagina and urethra are close together, it is easy for the bacteria to spread from the bowel to the urethra and travel up the urinary tract into the bladder, sometimes into the kidneys. Urinary tract infections that migrate upwards can cause a variety of kidney diseases and disorders.
Normal urine is sterile, containing fluid, salts and waste products. Infections can come from a variety of bacteria that normally live in the digestive system, or from sexually transmitted microorganisms such as Chlamydia and mycoplasmas.
