The excretory system is connected to the endocrine system and the circulatory system.
Circulatory system- Blood that passes through the body soon passes through the kidneys. The kidneys will remove the urea, uric acid, and water from the blood. The water is then put back into other systems.
Endocrine system- This system is tied to the kidneys. The adrenal gland is positioned above the kidneys. These glands produce a hormone called adrenaline.
When you drink to much water a hormone is produced to tell your body to urinate more. When u are dehydrated another hormone is released to tell your body to urinate less.
The kidneys are made up of 2 different types of tissue and epithelial tissue is one. The epithelial tissue is made up of epithelial cells. This level of organization are found in the nephrons of the kidney.
Kidney stones are hard “rocks” of crystals that were separated from the urine. The appears when there is unbalanced amount of water, salts and minerals. When you don’t drink enough water it can cause a kidney stone to form.
Symptoms: Extreme pain, cramping in the back and/or lower stomach area, nausea and vomiting.
Cures: There really isn’t many cures for kidney stones rather than drinking enough fluids and taking pain medicine. Doctors will at times prescribe medication to help your body pass the kidney stone.
