Where does it hurt? (12) - Nephrology


Nephrology is the medical specialty that deals with diseases of the kidney. Normally, we have two kidneys.

They are relatively small organs that are bean-shaped, and they are located just below the costal arch. The kidney takes care of both the drainage of the body and detoxification. But it also regulates our blood pressure, is responsible for the production of red blood cells, and regulates our mineral balance and bone metabolism.
