Kidneys are remarkable organs. Both blood filters and endocrine organs, kidneys remove waste, regulate electrolytes and acid-base homoeostasis, control fluid balance and blood pressure, and regulate bone metabolism and red blood cell production. They are intimately connected with the functioning of other organs, such as the heart and liver, and can be devastated by diseases as varied as diabetes, autoimmune disorders, and many infections. Yet, more than almost any other organ, they are often ignored and misunderstood. A UK survey for the Think Kidneys campaign in 2014 found that only 51% of people knew that kidneys made urine, and 8% thought the kidneys pumped blood and fluids around the body.
The kidney's public image might, paradoxically, be a victim of its own success. People can live normal, symptom-free lives until they have lost almost 70% of their renal function. When kidneys do fail, they can be replaced?because of a century of pioneering research. Human haemodialysis was first tried in 1924 in Giessen, Germany, and, as a World Report in today's Lancet shows, peritoneal dialysis is now available in some of the most deprived countries on earth. The first successful human organ transplantation was of a kidney in Boston, USA, in 1954, and kidneys are the most commonly transplanted organs today.
This renal-themed issue of The Lancet contains research articles on topics as diverse as a new antibiotic for complicated urinary tract infections, renal denervation for hypertension, and a hospital-based electronic alert system for acute kidney injury. Two Series papers discuss advances in the understanding of membranous nephropathy and management of autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease, and the Profile is of Andrzej Wi?cek, a nephrologist whose present focus is on adipose tissue as an endocrine organ. But the very nature of kidneys means that assessments of renal function and disease are made on the basis of proxy markers, and these estimates are often far from perfect. Much research focusing on biomarkers and targets for treatment is, by necessity, preliminary and preclinical. Research in kidney disease has come a very long way, and has a very long way to go.
The pair of kidneys that human beings have, forms an important part in the excretory system. They perform specific and important functions. They excrete urine as well as help in eliminating the toxins, which accumulate in the body. Kidney stones occur when the minerals present in the urine without being discharged, keep on accumulating. This gives rise to an extremely painful and uncomfortable situation. Though sometimes the situation gets revoked all by itself, many-a-times it requires medical intervention.
Some of the symptoms of kidney stones are:
- Excruciating pain in the back
- Pain while urinating
- Tendency to vomit
However, there are several preventive measures which you can undertake in order to avert the situation. Some of them are:
- Drink lots of water: Kidney stone is one of those rare conditions that once occurred, always carry the latent threat of recurring again. Therefore, drinking water in large quantities becomes essential. The more you drink water, the more frequently you would urinate, thereby curbing the chances of the minerals settling in the kidneys.
- Avoid certain foods: Food like beets, spinach, those which are replete with calcium oxalate should be avoided in order to minimize chances of having kidney stones.
- Foods recommended:
- Eat lots of fruits and vegetables
- Drink plenty of water ( 10 -12 glasses of water)
- Dietary calcium of 1gm a day
- Low oxalate diet Foods to be restricted
- Reduce the amount of salt in your diet
- Restrict food containing excess of oxalate
- Limit intake of animal proteins
- Change your diet: If you are trying to avoid the eventuality of developing kidney stones, it is imperative that you change your diet a bit. It is recommended that you exclude animal protein as much as possible and assiduously avoid the intake of salt as much as possible.
- Take less calcium supplements: Calcium generally is considered a nemesis to your kidneys and is prescribed by doctors to be avoided. However, recent research has thwarted this claim. Calcium does not pose a threat to kidneys. However, calcium supplements definitely do and therefore, should be avoided.

Colorectal surgery is performed to repair damages that occur in the organs of the anus, rectum, and colon. The damage that takes place in these organs can be the result of problems with lower GI like diverticulitis (a condition wherein pouches known as diverticula in the colon wall become inflamed), cancer and inflammatory bowel disease (a group of intestinal disorders that bring about inflammation of the GI).
Who needs this surgery?
In general, colorectal surgery is an essential treatment option for ulcerative colitis, colorectal cancer, Crohn's disease (an inflammatory bowel disease that gives rise to inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract) as well as certain diverticulitis cases. In such cases, the intestinal tract undergoes major reconstruction.
There are also other bowel problems that may require surgery but not of a serious nature and these are anal fissures, hemorrhoids, bowel incontinence and rectal prolapse. Most of the surgical procedures will aid in repairing tears, get rid of blockages, or make tighter sphincter muscles (muscles that surround openings in the body).
Colorectal surgery is also performed in cases of pelvic floor disorders like rectocele (a condition in which the rectum bulges towards the vagina) and perineal hernia (a hernia that involves the pelvic floor).
At the same time, injury, ischemia or compromised blood supply and obstruction may require the performance of bowel surgery as well. Scar tissue and masses can form within the rectum, clogging the organ and preventing the normal discharge of feces from the body.
Problems like ulcerative colitis (an inflammatory bowel disease that leads to the development of ulcers in the colon as well as inflammation of the area) and diverticulitis can give rise to perforations in the rectum. Surgery is suggested in instances when drugs fail to treat the problem of ulcerative colitis.
Likewise, in the case of recurrent instances of perforations or complications in diverticulitis, surgery may be required to remove the portion of the colon affected.
