Kidney theme

We are fortunate to have both kidneys as a consequence of evolution. With two kidneys, one can rest and clear itself of the accumulated waste while the other works. If we had only one we could live, but it would work at very forced speeds throughout our lives. The body has evolutionary and in embryonic development, bilateral symmetry.


The body shows an external bilateral symmetry that is not maintained internally because it presents many asymmetries in the position of the different organs. In the initial stages, we have a heart, a liver, a spleen located in the middle of the body, and other double organs, which divide in the middle and grow apart in development but start from the same type of embryonic tissue. Thus, the double organs divide in two, and the only ones “move” from the center to the corresponding side, “giving the impression”, in the end, that we are not symmetrical because the unique organs are each on one side.


Many organs are duplicated, others are not. The liver for example or the heart are not duplicated but well are the kidneys, lungs and even the brain consist of two almost symmetrical halves although with different functions.

I was thrilled to see the picture of the kidney stones, I have heard that it is awfully painful to remove/evacuate them through the natural way:/

    Our bodies are so interesting. As you say they are symmetrical on the outside but internally contain different organs in different places. Luckily we do have two kidneys.

    The list of foods for good kidney health are all foods I like and consume regularly, so this is good for me. I also exercise regularly and do some resistance training, so I think that my kidneys should be in good health.

    Recently, a friend of mine suffered for over a week with kidney stones. I saw him every day, and he did not look good, He was in constant pain, despite being on pain medication, and was not able to sleep… he became very irritated and grumpy. We were all relieved when he was finally able to pass the kidney stones out through his urine.
    Thanks for bringing awareness to a very important subject.

    Hey Venche, this is some great info about kidneys you presented here! My dad just got diagnosed with kidney disease and he is diabetic as well so it is always a struggle to know what to allow him to eat because some foods are good for diabetics but harmful for kidneys and vice versa! I like how you mentioned that exercise is important in flushing out excessive salts from the body. But I was wondering what you thought about oil intake. What kinds of oils are best for people with kidney disease?

    1. Venche says:

      Hi Sasha,

      Thanks for your feedback,
      As diabetes with kidney disease, he can always eat cauliflower, onions, eggplant & drink water, clear diet sodas, and unsweetened tea.

      Olive oil is one of the healthiest cooking oils and can be used to prepare many different foods.

      Have a great day,

    Nice…quite informative post. Always knew kidney is an vital organ but always had the viewpoint that “drink 2 liters of water daily” and your kidneys will stay long. I was clueless about the food that was good for kidney. I had few questions: Is meat good for kidney? Is seafood a better alternative than fresh or frozen meat?

    Would love to know your opinion on the same?

    1. Venche says:

      Hi satz,

      consuming too much meat is bad for kidneys that can lead to produces high measures of corrosive in the blood that can be unsafe to the kidneys and cause acidosis. Salmon is one of the best fish for kidneys As it has omega-3 fats, it may lessen fat levels in the blood, and furthermore somewhat lower circulatory strain. As hypertension is a danger factor for kidney illness, discovering characteristic approaches to bring down it might help secure the kidneys.

      Thanks for your comment. Have a great day,
