Expert Answer:

Osmoregulation is the control of the water and electrolyte balance in the body. The organisms living in hyperosmotic, hypoosmotic, and terrestrial environments all carry out osmoregulation and regulate solute and water concentrations in their body fluids. Kidneys play a very large role in human osmoregulation, regulating the amount of water in urine waste
