Kidney is a very important organ. We have two kidneys in our body. They are used to filter our metabolic waste and water and then excreted out. According to the research, human being can still live even he/she has only one healthy kidney. However, if the kidney undesirable symptoms appear in a patient, most of the times, his/her kidney has been in big trouble.

There are three warning signals for the un-healthy kidney:

1) Urine with blood (sometimes cloudy urine will be observed)
