Metabolic Wastes

Also known as excrement, are metabolic by-products which the organism cannot utilize and therefore need to be expelled from the body due to its toxic accumulation. Some wastes include nitrogen, water, gases, solids, and the like. Nitrogenous wastes include ammonia, urea, uric acid, and creatinine which are all formed from protein metabolism. All metabolic wastes are water-soluble and are therefore excreted in the form of water solutes by excretory organs. Excretion of metabolic wastes enable the organism to achieve homeostasis.
