Healthy kidneys have millions of nephrons that filter this waste. Then it is removed from the body in the urine. Well then, for kidney disease patient, their unhealthy kidneys lose the ability to remove protein waste and it starts to build up in the blood, which can increase kidney’s burden. The impaired kidney itself need to work harder, which can increase kidney damage.
