Dr. Jorge Busse, Nephrologist with Baptist Health South Florida, explains kidneys are connected to the bladder by the ureters. “If you are lacking calcium, you will not excrete it properly and you will keep it in your body,” he says.

He also points out kidneys do a lot of filtering of the blood, and they also regulate blood pressure, but basically they maintain your internal bloodstream free of toxins and control abnormalities.
