WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU HAVE KIDNEY FAILURE

What Happens When You Have Kidney Failure



We were born with two kidneys located at the back of our body, in between the spine. The kidneys start producing urine, as early as during fetal life, in the mother’s womb. As early as 14 weeks of pregnancy. The kidney develops as other organs, reaching its maturity when the individual reaches at 25 years old.
The microfiltration unit in the kidney called nephron and each kidney has 1 million units once reach the age of 25 years old. In total there are 2 million units in a healthy individual.
