NATIONAL KIDNEY MONTH
National Kidney Month during March is a reminder to give our kidneys a check up.
Located in our lower back, these two hard-working organs filter 200 liters of blood a day! They remove waste, drugs and regulate sodium, potassium and acid content. The kidneys also control the production of red blood cells, produce Vitamin D and help regulate blood pressure. Keeping our kidneys healthy is vital to a long and productive life.
