Your kidneys remove waste from your blood and help manage your blood pressure, the production of red blood cells and the amount of certain minerals in your body fluids. Damage to your kidneys can cause waste to build up in your body and make you sick. When you need medical care for these two bean-shaped organs in your abdomen, turn to kidney specialists – called nephrologists – at Tidelands Health.
