Equilibrium: The kidneys determine the amount of urine you make. If you are dehydrated they hold on to fld by concentrating the urine, if you drink excessively the kidney excretes excess fluid by diluting the urine. This keeps people from being at the correct fluid level, every day you eat Amino Acids (protein) 1 osm/kg/day. You must excrete the acid via the kidney or you will retain acid in the body.
