Nephron is the functional entity of the kidney. Each kidney consists about several millions of these nephrons. The specific function of the nephron is to remove from the blood plasma certain end products of metabolism, such as urea, uric acid, and creatinine, and any excess sodium, chloride, and potassium ions. By allowing for reabsorption of water and some electrolytes back into the blood, the nephron also plays a vital role to keep up the normal fluid balance in the body.
