You Can Still Maintain An Almost Normal Lifestyle Even If You Need Kidney Dialysis, Says This Nephrologist
Every day, your kidneys filter approximately 180 litres of blood that is output by your heart. Waste and extra fluid are removed from your body, leaving a healthy balance of water, salts, and minerals.
Considering the fact that you have 7 to 8 litres of blood in your body, your entire blood volume gets filtered almost 20 to 25 times per day!
