Express Gratitude to the Nephrologist
The human body is a complex system comprising different organs and organ systems. There is the digestive system, respiratory system, circulatory system, pancreatic system, and more.
For a healthy body, all systems need to function in tandem seamlessly. One vital system is the renal system and it is known as nephrology. Nephrology is the branch of medicine that deals with the kidneys and the treatment of kidney diseases. Kidney specialists are known as nephrologists or just “nephrologists.” A person with kidney disease may also be called a “kidney patient” or “renal patient.”
A nephrologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats kidney disease. He specializes in the study of the functions and disorders of kidneys. A nephrologist is responsible for managing patients with kidney diseases, providing advice to patients undergoing dialysis, or transplantation, treating kidney injuries and infections.
While kidney disease can affect people of any age, it’s most common among older adults. Nephrologists provide treatment for kidney disease that ranges from medication to dialysis. They also perform kidney transplants and manage patients with end-stage renal disease or kidney failure.
While there are some treatments available to slow damage to your kidneys and prevent further kidney disease, there is no cure. Nephrologists can consult with you about lifestyle changes you can make to keep your kidneys healthy, as well as ways to adapt to issues with the renal system.
Nephrologists are trained to treat patients of every age and condition including diseases such as renal failure, chronic renal failure, hypertension, glomerulonephritis, and diabetic nephropathy.
As kidney specialists, nephrologists know how to diagnose and treat kidney disease in its early stages before it causes serious problems for their patients.
Nephrologists are specialist doctors to whom your physician will refer in case you are suffering from issues related to your renal system.
As they are medical specialists, they can perform both diagnostic tests and treatments. In order to manage or better their patients’ conditions, they determine the cause of the disease and its evolution throughout time in order to apply the most appropriate treatment based on the patient’s condition. They may also help teach patients how to care for themselves so they can improve the quality of their life while dealing with a chronic illness.
A Nephrologist works with patients who have kidney diseases, including both renal failure and chronic kidney disease. Kidney diseases are serious conditions and cannot be neglected. Hence, the role of a nephrologist is critical.
