Medical Kidneys processing urine

  1. Dec 25, 2009 #1
    How does the kidneys produce urine; in matter of 'regulation' (?).

    Is it a flush when required or are they always dripping in the bladder? Or both?

    Thank you.

    To answer your question: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Renal_physiology" [Broken].

    For optimum kidney health, drink plenty of water, get daily exercise, including 30-min cardio sessions three times a week, and well-rounded (all muscles) anerobic (weights) exercises twice a week, and eat a healthy, well-balanced diet of fresh fruits and vegetables, some lean meats, dairy, grains, cereals, nuts, and legumes. Avoid processed food, high-fructose corn syrup, artificial sweeteners, and alcohol, other than in moderation.

    Of course this applies to optimum health for your entire body, too!
