What is a Nephrologist (Kidney Specialist)?

Nephrologists specialise in the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the kidneys and their systemic effects.

When to see a Nephrologist?

A nephrologist can advise and adjust medications and provide dialysis or refer for transplantation if required. The most common nephrology conditions include diabetic kidney treatment, glomerulonephritis and nephrotic syndrome.
