We're so excited to start 2019 with big plans for the year. Thank you for joining us since we launched in August. We hope the information we're providing is helping you and your family live happier, healthier lives.
What we accomplished in 2018
2018 was a learning year for IMFPP. We launched the website in August and since then have been working hard at creating weekly blog posts as well as creating the disease pages.
Our weekly blog post has been a place of pride for us. We're working hard to ensure it is released every Thursday morning and has the highest quality information. We've had some amazing contributing authors and plan to keep bringing you the best we can.
Currently the pages that have the most information are the urinary, endocrine, liver, hematology, and immunology. These pages are not 100% complete, but most of the basics are there. As we continue to grow, these pages will continue to be fleshed out.
We're excited to have grown our newsletter list to over 100 subscribers! Everyone on our list got a copy of our Weekly Treatment Tracker and we've heard great feedback on it. Thank you so much to everyone that's joined us so far. If you'd like to join here's the link: Subscribe Now!
In the background we've been working on the nitty-gritty details to set up our business for the growth we have planned in the future.
Plans for 2019
What are the kidneys?
The kidneys are a pair of organs within the abdominal cavity and are the start of the urinary tract. The medical term for referring to the kidneys is renal. Their main jobs include filtering blood, reabsorbing essential nutrients, helping maintain blood pressure, and producing certain hormones.
The kidneys filter blood and excrete toxins to be urinated out of the body. Inside the kidneys there are millions of tiny filtration structures called nephrons. The blood must pass through the first section of the nephron called the glomerulus. Here the blood's liquid portion, the plasma, separates and crosses over a barrier from the glomerulus and is collected in the Bowman's Capsule. This liquid is called ultrafiltrate (it will soon turn into urine).
