BIOLOGY
Asked by Audrey

What organ system does the kidney belong to? What organ system does the liver belong to?

The kidney belongs to the urinary system and is therefore involved in the production of urine. In easy terms, its function is to regulate the contents of the blood, its acidity and its volume. It does so by finely balancing out the amount of water that is excreted in the urine. It also filters the blood to get rid of any unwanted and potentially toxic waste products (e.g. urea). The liver is part of the digestive system. Its function is to chemically break down many different molecules that are taken up into the body (e.g. with food or drink). It is therefore involved in detoxification i.e. breaking down toxic waste products. It is also the central storage point for the body’s glucose reserves. It therefore plays an important role in the balance of blood glucose. Hope this helps! Do not hesitate to message me if you have any questions. 😊
