Our kidneys filter the blood, excrete urine, and help in regulating water, electrolytes, and acid-base content of the blood. Kidney function can be impaired by infections, autoimmune conditions, elevated blood sugar, cardiovascular disease, some medications, and toxins. Symptoms that the kidneys may be overwhelmed include chills or fever, urinary abnormalities such as blood in the urine, edema, pain in the area of the kidneys, nausea, or vomiting. You may wish to refer to the Cystitis section of this guide. Should toxicity be suspected, such as heavy metals that are very harmful to the kidneys, please refer to the Detoxification section of this guide.
