A nephrologist treats kidney diseases such as kidney stones, fluid and electrolyte disorders, acute or chronic kidney diseases, and more.
Kidneys are vital organs, maintaining the fluid balance of the human body. A nephrologist usually treats patients who have been referred by their general practitioner for problems related to the kidneys, high blood pressure, or certain metabolic disorders.
A nephrologist will often conduct blood and urine tests to determine how the kidneys are functioning. If the kidneys are not functioning correctly, the nephrologist undertakes diagnosis of the disease and provides patients with treatment. Patients are then regularly examined to monitor their condition.
