Nephrology is a branch of science which deals with the diagnosis and treatment of the patients suffering from different kidney-related diseases and disorders. A Nephrologist deals with patients who suffer from kidney diseases and dysfunction, which may affect other parts of the body. A Nephrologist will help you to recover from dysfunctional kidney with different therapies and medicines.
The symptoms of kidney disorders can be a reduced amount of urine, swelling due to fluid retention in legs, breathing problem, drowsiness, consistent nausea, chest pain, seizures, etc. Different causes lead to kidney dysfunctional.

Before your Nephrologist performs any procedure on you, he will suggest you submit the report of vitamin D, blood markers test, hormone test for BP, etc.

There are different types of treatment which a Nephrologist cures. The different kidney-related treatments are kidney transplant, percutaneous Nephrolithotomy, Nephrostomy, etc. These treatments are performed if the kidney does not function properly.

FAQs

General FAQs of Nephrology

If kidneys stop their work, there will be a build-up of waste material in the body that will make the person seriously ill and cause:
• high blood pressure
• fluid accumulation
• imbalance of salt and acids in the blood
• decreased red blood cells
• weakening of bones
This condition is serious, often life-threatening and is termed as kidney failure (or end-stage renal/kidney disease).

Living donors: Living donor can be any person who is healthy with healthy kidneys. As our body can work well even with a single kidney, friends, or family of the person can choose to donate one kidney. But this requires matching of blood and tissue of both the donor and recipient.
Deceased donors: A deceased/cadaver donor can also donate a kidney. A kidney from a deceased is taken if the person died due to some accident rather than any disease.
It is better to have a kidney donated by your family member as there are fewer chances of rejection as compared to a donated kidney from an unrelated donor.
