Urinary System
Integumentary System
The urinary system
compensates for
water loss due to
sweating. The kidneys
and skin both play a
role in vitamin D
production.
Cardiovascular System
The urinary system
controls blood volume.
Blood volume and
blood pressure play a
role in determining
water and solute
excretion.
Skeletal System
The kidneys
and bone tissue work
together to control
plasma calcium
levels.
Lymphatic System
The kidneys control
extracellular fluid
volume and
composition (including
lymph).
Muscular System
Muscle tissue
controls urine
elimination from
the bladder.
Kidneys excrete
creatinine,
produced by
muscle metabolism.
Digestive System
The kidneys
compensate for
fluids lost by the
digestive system.
Nervous System
The nervous system
influences urine
production and
elimination.
Endocrine System
The endocrine
system influences
urine production.
Reproductive System
The urinary system in
males shares organs
with the reproductive
system. The kidneys
compensate for fluids
lost from the male and
female reproductive
systems.
Respiratory System
The kidneys and
the lungs work
together to control
the pH of the
internal
environment.
