					KIDNEYS - EXCRETION
          INTRODUCTION
    FUN FACTS
   You could live with just one kidney
   Each kidney is about 4 ½ inches long
   Refined carbs  kidney stones (stimulates insulin  extra calcium)
   Kidneys filter your blood and CLEAN it - remove toxins
   400 gallons/1500L filtered blood daily
   Volume of urine excreted daily: 1 - 2 litres
   Drugs and alcohol make the kidney’s job more difficult
   Kidneys can change your blood pressure
   Dialysis is like having an external kidney
   1 in 9 adults in the U.S. have kidney disease

PREPARED SLIDE
   Look at the slide on a white piece of paper
   Draw what you see and label the parts:
       Renal cortex
       Renal medulla
       Renal pelvis
   Look at a nephron under the microscope
       Label the parts to the nephron
       Label surrounding tissue
