Q: What is a Nephrologist?
A: A nephrologist is a physician who specializes in kidney care and treating diseases of the kidneys. Nephrologists are also known as kidney doctors. Nephrologists are educated in internal medicine and then undergo more training to specialize in treating patients with kidney diseases. They commonly treat chronic kidney disease (CKD), polycystic kidney disease (PKD), acute renal failure, kidney stones and high blood pressure and are educated on all aspects of kidney transplantation and dialysis.
Q: When should I consider a Nephrologist?
A: Your primary care physician may refer you to a nephrologist, or you may consider contacting a nephrologist if you are experiencing protein loss in the urine, blood loss in the urine, repeat/chronic urinary tract indections, repeat kidney stones, a glomerular filtration rate (GFR) of 30 or lower, high blood pressure that does not respond to medication, accelerated decline in kidney function, acute renal failure, and chronic kidney disease.
Q: Why is aggressive intervention and early detection very important?
A: The earlier kidney disease is detected, the better the chance of slowing or stopping its progression. When appropriate, an aggressive approach is taken to treat challenging cases in a timely fashion.
Q: How should I select a Nephrologist?
A: Select a Nephrologist who is Board Certified in Nephrology with transplant nephrology involvement.
