The kidneys


The kidneys are two 'bean-shaped' organs in the lower back that serve to conserve water, maintain blood osmolarity, help in acid-base balance, and filter blood plasma.

Urine is the fluid product produced by the kidneys which is excreted as waste from the body.

Anatomically, they are located in the retroperitoneal space between the peritoneum and the back muscles.
