Nephrology & Dialysis

Nephrology is study of kidney & its diseases. It involves study of kidney functions (electrolytes management), diseases affecting kidney (e.g. Diabetes, hypertension etc.) and taking care of effect of kidney disease on body like anaemia, bone disease, water and electrolyte management.

Nephrologist in our country is a internal medicine doctor with 3 year training in nephrology with experience in handling kidney injury.

If advanced kidney disease is not recoverable person may require dialysis, kidney transplant. Common disease like diabetes, hypertension and proteinuria if not managed progress rapidly to advance disease. Other common cause is indiscriminate use of common painkiller NSAIDS and some slimming regime medication. A person with kidney disease may be recoverable from advanced kidney failure, particularly if it is acute and managed properly by specialist.

Unfortunately even advanced kidney disease remain silent with no symptoms for quite long where it became unrecoverable and require renal replacement therapy like HEMODIALYSIS, PERITONEAL DIALYSIS, KIDNEY TRANSPLANT. All these treatment is managed by nephrologist to give Quality life and best possible treatment to CHRONIC KIDNEY DISEASE person.
