A nephrologist is a physician who is specially trained to diagnose and treat conditions affecting the kidneys, or renal system.
The kidneys are responsible for cleaning the blood and keeping them chemically balanced. A patient may be suffering from decreased kidney function, or kidney failure if the following symptoms are present:
- Blood or protein present in urine
- High blood pressure (hypertension)
- Kidney stones
- Electrolyte disorder
- Fluid retention
A nephrologist will determine through urine analysis, blood test, X-ray, sonogram, or kidney biopsy how well the kidneys are functioning and will then prescribe a special diet and exercise program, medication or dialysis - a process by which a machine filters the blood when the kidney is no longer capable of doing so.
