Nephrology, or renal medicine involves diagnosis and treatment of kidney diseases and disorders. Common problems with the kidneys include: acute loss of kidney function or chronic worsening of function; hypertension, kidney stones; urinary tract infections; blood loss in the urine; and protein loss in the urine. Treatment for many kidney disorders by a Nephrologist, commonly involves medications. However, if kidney function worsens or begins to fail, dialysis may be needed and, later, kidney transplantation.
