Nephrology

The kidneys are filtering units of the body. A bean-shaped kidney has one million tiny filters, or nephrons, that separates the nutrients and other important substances and entities of the body needs from waste products and excess fluid; commonly thrown out of the body as urine.

Common kidney diseases range from minor kidney stones to chronic kidney disease to kidney failure. Kidney or renal conditions are on the rise globally including India.

Causes for kidney diseases include:

  • High blood sugar and high blood pressure damage the kidney’s nephrons and impair blood vessel function, making it more difficult for waste to be removed leading to either temporary or permanent kidney failure.
  • Other reasons like excessive and long-term intake of pain killers, alternative medicine, and genetic factors contribute to kidney failure
