Nephrology is the study of the normal functioning of kidneys as well as treatment or diseases related to it. Kidneys are essential for filtering out waste products and excess water from the body. They are also vital for retaining the fluid intake, electrolytes that may be altered by numerous conditions or medicines.
Nephrology deals with the diagnosis as well as treatment of kidney diseases, including hypertension and electrolyte disturbances. It also provides care to individuals who require renal replacement therapy, including dialysis and renal transplant.
Some diseases affecting the kidney are systemic disorders, which means, they are not limited to the organ itself and may require special treatment. Examples include acquired diseases like systemic vasculitides (e.g. ANCA vasculitis) and autoimmune diseases (e.g., lupus), as well as genetic conditions like polycystic kidney disease. Patients are referred to nephrology experts after a urinalysis, for multiple reasons, such as chronic kidney disease, acute kidney failure, hematuria, kidney stones, proteinuria hypertension, and disorders of electrolytes or acid/base.
