The urinary system functions to filter waste that is not necessary for the body from the blood and removes water, salt, and toxins from the body in the form of urine. Which consists of the following organs:

  • There are two kidneys, located in the back of the abdomen under the ribs. Shaped like red beans. It filters waste products from the blood and creates urine UFABET 
  • The ureters are tubes that come out of both kidneys. They transport urine from the kidneys down to the bladder.
  • The bladder is a place to store urine. It has the shape of a balloon. and can be expanded The bladder can normally hold approximately 350–500 ml of urine. But you will begin to feel the need to urinate when you have 200–350 ml of urine while you urinate. The bladder muscles contract. This causes the sphincter to open. So that urine can flow out into the urethra
  • The urethra is the tube that transports urine to excrete urine from the body.

Diseases related to the urinary system that may be encountered include kidney and bladder infections, kidney stones , and urinary incontinence and chronic kidney disease. 

The excretion of feces is caused by the body digesting food and absorbing various nutrients that are necessary for the body. Food waste remaining from digestion is sent to the large intestine. Called the rectum to wait to be excreted through the anus. 

People whose digestive system works normally will have bowel movements no less than 3 times per day per week. and not more often than 3 times per day. With common bowel movement disorders such as constipation and diarrhea.
