Nephrology in kukatpally



Nephrology is a medical specialty which deals with diagnosis and treatment of kidney diseases, including electrolyte, acid-base disturbances and hypertension and the care of those requiring renal replacement therapy (RRT), including dialysis and kidney transplant patients. In fact, in Nephrology,  kidney disease ranks as the 12th leading cause of death globally. In Nephrology , Having your kidneys malfunction is even more likely than having your liver malfunction, primarily due to the chronic health conditions that develop at the same time. Kidney disease can develop from existing health issues like diabetes, obesity, heart disease, and high blood pressure. It can also cause high blood pressure and heart disease to develop, even if you didn’t have these conditions before.

What Does a Nephrologist Do?
