What organs does the renal system include?
The renal system consists of the kidneys, ureters, bladder and the urethra.
Following filteration of blood and further processing, wastes exit the kidney via the ureters, that propel urine towards the urinary bladder. The urine collects in the bladder, where it is stored and subsequently expelled from the body by urination.
The function of the renal system is to eliminate wastes from the body, regulate blood volume and blood pressure, control levels of electrolytes and metabolites and regulate blood pH.
