If these parts of the kidneys were injured or diseased, what do you think will happen to the organism?


Of course, it can't function well or it can't digest our food obviously, because as the saying goes: "The pain of the little finger is felt by the whole body"
It will not work properly. it may lead to the failure of the system or in worse cases death.
It depends on severity & extent of damage.   :)
If only one kidney is diseased and the other is working properly, man lives. if more than 75% of both kidney is damaged, man needs a transplant

the organism might experience kidney failure and die eventually

Kidneys play an important role in filtering waste from the blood thus if the kidney is injured or diseases waste build up to the point that the organism will be sick and die.

For example the disease was UTI. If it is minor, the doctor may prescribe drugs or recommend drinking a lot of water. If it is severe, the doctor may recommend to have a surgery.

As long as the injury to the kidney is not too extreme or extensive, the kidney will recover. The kidneys have significant reserve function, so they can sustain some injury without risk. Also many individuals live with one kidney, which is all you really need. In the extreme situation when the kidneys no longer function adequately, dialysis is used to replace kidney function, either long term or until a new kidney is provided (called a kidney transplant).

Got it from KianPatrick


1.If the heart is severely injured, people often die before they can be treated. However, many injuries worsen over hours or even longer. A bruise to the heart muscle (myocardial contusion) may disrupt the heart's normal, rhythmic beating, making heartbeats too fast, too slow, or irregular (arrhythmia).

2.When your kidneys are damaged, waste products and fluid can build up in your body. That can cause swelling in your ankles, nausea, weakness, poor sleep, and shortness of breath. Without treatment, the damage can get worse and your kidneys may eventually stop working. That's serious, and it can be life-threatening.

3.Similarly, most blunt kidney injuries are minor. However, some are serious. If serious blunt or penetrating kidney injuries are not treated, complications, such as kidney failure or kidney loss, delayed bleeding, infection, and high blood pressure may result.

It depends on extent and severity of damage. If they can't do that well enough, waste builds up to point were people can get sick or even die.

Do you know the answer?
