Imbalances of Digestive and Urinary Function
Unit 6 focused on digestion, nutrition, renal function, and acid-base balance. There was a great deal of information presented on all topics and the importance of each topic cannot be overstated. Often we do not think about how our food and drink consumption impacts our kidney function and truly our urinary output. When one consumes a great deal of water they will have increased urinary output as the body will maintain a balance of water within the body and will increase the output of diluted urine to maintain homeostasis.
