What is nephrology?

Nephrology is the branch of medicine in which nephrologists investigate, diagnose, prevent and treat kidney problems. These include:

Chronic kidney disease, or CKD: a reduction in the overall health and function of the kidneys. Some CKD may be progressive. Acute kidney failure, which leads to a sudden loss of kidney function due to an acute insult or disease process. Hypertension (or high blood pressure).

Specific renal diseases such as glomerulonephritis, polycystic kidney disease, diabetic nephropathy, HIV-related kidney disease, drug toxicity or renal tubular disease Electrolyte and acid-base abnormalities: disorders that cause an imbalance of the salts in the blood and problems with the regulation of acid excretion from the kidneys. Medical management of kidney stones: people who develop kidney stones often require surgical removal of their stones, and also a medical evaluation to determine the cause of stone formation and whether preventive therapy can help them to avoid kidney stones in the future. Haematuria (blood in the urine) or proteinuria (protein in the urine): both are often detected on routine health screening and require expert assessment. Care for people who have had a kidney transplant.
