Episode 278 is an all inclusive guide to kidney anatomy, health, bloodwork, and MORE for physique and performance based athletes! First I dig into some basics on kidney anatomy and function before moving into some considerations for athletes looking to get bloodwork done to track kidney health, and all before ending with practical application on how to maintain kidney health while pushing for your goals! Also, theres a few references I'll provide below for those looking to take things further!
