Nephrology is a specialty of medicine concerned with the anatomy of kidneys; i.e. study of kidney functions, accessing kidney problems and preserving kidney health through diet and treatments. General nephrology at NU Hospitals India deals with the treatment and management of nephritic syndrome, acute nephritic syndrome, acute renal failure and chronic renal failure. Although, Diabetic Nephropathy is the most commonly encountered chronic kidney disease at our nephrology hospital in Karnataka, we address all other kinds of acute renal failure as well. For children being diagnosed with kidney diseases we have a team of highly experienced paediatric nephrologists in Bangalore who carry out both general and surgical procedures to treat these issues. Early detection of kidney diseases is vital in order to prevent the complications from getting worse.

Know the conditions treated below:

  • Nephrotic Syndrome: it is a condition where the patient develops swelling in the legs and face, while having excess protein excretion with the urine. A kidney biopsy helps to find out the root cause of this condition.
  • Acute Nephritic Syndrome: It is commonly found in children. It initiates with a sore throat or a skin infection, eventually developing red urine (due to the presence of blood in the urine), along with face and leg swelling and high blood pressure. It takes a short while to clear up by itself, usually a few days or weeks.
  • Acute Renal Failure: It is a reversible complication of kidney failure, wherein the kidneys suddenly can’t filter waste from the blood. Mostly caused by dehydration, due to recurrent lose motions, vomiting, bacterial/viral infections, side effects of certain drugs or blockage in the urine passage.
  • Chronic Renal Failure:
     As the name suggests, this refers to irreversible kindey failure, when the kidneys lose their functional abilities completely. While the most common cause is diabetes mellitus, it can also be caused by hypertension, genetic disorders, recurrent urinary tract infections and prolonged usage of painkillers.

The broad service of general nephrology at NU Hospitals includes hospital services for patients with acute or chronic kidney diseases in addition to other ailments they may have. It is pivotal to know the cause of the kidney disease for preventing any further damage. Thus, our nephrologists mainly focus on investigating the disease, to avoid any further escalation in the condition.
