Diseases

There are many diseases in the excretory system. Such as Nocturia, a bladder infection, a kidney infection, and a kidney stone. I am going to focus on kidney stones. They form when the calcium levels in your urine change. Symptoms include sudden severe pain getting worse in waves, feeling nautious, blood in pee, or frequent and painful urination. you can fix it by getting the kidney removed.

Living Without organs in excretory system

You cant live without the excretory system. You can live without a kidney however. The remaining kidney will take the job of the removed one and do all the work

How it works with other systems

Endocrine: the adrenal glands secrete a chemical substance that allows kidneys to correctly regulate fluids in the body

Circulatory: the adrenal glands secrete a chemical substance that allows kidneys to correctly regulate fluids in the body

Nervous: Tells the excretory system when to release waste
