Kidneys are essential to having a healthy body. They impact on most of our body functions that if left untreated, can lead to death. So, what makes kidneys so important and how do they work? The major function of kidneys is the removal of wastes and extra fluid from the body. Kidneys also remove acid that is produced by the cells of the body and maintain a healthy balance of water, salts, and minerals—such as sodium, calcium, phosphorus, and potassium—in the blood.
