Nephrology and dialysis are interrelated fields of medicine that focus on the health of the kidneys.

Nephrology is the field of medicine that deals with the kidneys and their disorders. Nephrologists are specialists who diagnose and treat kidney diseases, including chronic kidney disease (CKD), acute kidney injury (AKI), and glomerulonephritis. They also manage the care of patients with kidney failure who require dialysis or kidney transplantation.

Dialysis is a treatment that filters waste products and excess fluid from the blood when the kidneys are no longer able to do so sufficiently on their own. There are two main types of dialysis: hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis.

Here’s a breakdown of the functions of nephrologists and dialysis:

  • Nephrologists can:

    • Diagnose and treat a variety of kidney diseases
    • Recommend lifestyle changes to prevent or slow the progression of kidney disease
    • Manage complications of kidney disease, such as high blood pressure and anemia
    • Refer patients for dialysis or kidney transplantation
    • Provide ongoing care for patients with kidney failure
  • Dialysis is used to:

    • Remove waste products and excess fluid from the blood
    • Help to regulate blood pressure and electrolytes
    • Improve overall health and well-being
