Diabetic Neuropathy This animation describes diabetic neuropathy, which is a condition that develops when there is impairment or physical damage to the nervous system due to increased blood glucose.


Kidney (structure, mechanism of excretion) 

The Kidney  

The kidneys are complicated organs that have numerous biological roles. Their primary role is to maintain the homeostatic balance of bodily fluids by filtering and secreting metabolites (such as urea) and minerals from the blood and excreting them, along with water, as urine. Because the kidneys are poised to sense plasma concentrations of ions such as sodium, potassium, hydrogen, oxygen, and compounds such as amino acids, creatinine, bicarbonate, and glucose, they are important regulators of blood pressure, glucose metabolism, and erythropoiesis (the process by which red blood cells (erythrocytes) are produced).

 Diabetic Nephropathy  This animation describes diabetic nephropathy, which is a disorder where the nephron of the kidneys are damaged due to high blood pressure caused by diabetes

 Liver is the largest organ inside the human body. It performs 500 different functions and processes 720 liters of blood per day. a few of which are detoxification, protein synthesis, and production of biochemicals necessary for digestion. The liver is necessary for survival; a human can only last up to 24 hours without liver function. The liver plays a major role in metabolism and has a number of functions in the body, including glycogen storage.

Liver Cancer :  Because the liver is made up of several different types of cells, many types of tumors can form in the liver. Some of these are cancerous and some are not cancerous. These tumors have different causes and are treated different ways. The outlook for your health or recovery depends on what type of tumor you have.
