Nephrology department deals with many other complications and injuries to kidneys arising from different diseases. Below are few areas of expertise and facilities provided.
Your kidneys are vital organs that filter fluid and waste out of your blood, and you cannot live without them. Diseases that lower your kidney’s ability to clean your blood can affect only the kidneys, or harm other parts of your body too. These health conditions can cause chronic kidney disease or kidney failure.
TYPES OF KIDNEY DISEASES:
Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is when lasting damage to your kidneys causes them to lose their ability to filter waste and fluid out of your blood. Waste can build up in your body and harm your health. This damage–and your kidney function–can get worse over time, and when your kidneys stop working completely, this is called kidney failure or end-stage renal disease.
Glomerulonephritis is when the small filters (glomeruli) in your kidneys that clean your blood are damaged and lose their ability to excrete waste and fluids. Over time, this can lead to kidney failure. Many health problems can cause glomerulonephritis and treatment depends on the cause.
AHUS (atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome)
AHUS is a very rare genetic disorder (running in families) that causes small blood clots to form in your body’s small blood vessels. These particles can block blood flow to your kidneys and other organs and cause damage. Most people with AHUS have no symptoms. For people with symptoms, it usually starts after a “traumatic event,” such as pregnancy or cancer..
Polycystic Kidney Disease
Polycystic kidney disease (PKD) is a genetic disease (running in families) that causes cysts (fluid-filled growth) to build up in your kidneys and other organs. These lumps can lower your kidneys’ ability to filter fluid and waste from your bloodstream. Over time, PKD can cause kidney failure. There is no cure for PKD, but treatment can slow down the growth of cysts and prevent the symptoms of PKD from causing health problems.
Lupus nephritis is an autoimmune disease (a disease that causes your immune system to attack its tissues) leading to pain, swelling and damage throughout your body, including your kidneys. This can lead to chronic kidney disease or kidney failure. The exact cause of lupus nephritis is unknown, but with treatment most people with lupus can reduce their symptoms and prevent serious kidney damage.
IgA nephropathy is a disease that causes the proteins made by your immune system to build up in your kidneys and damage the glomeruli. This process over years can damage the glomeruli, and people with IgA often do not know they have it. Over time, IgA nephropathy can lead to chronic kidney disease. With initial screening, early check-up and prophylactic measures the process can be reduced and even stopped.
