Nephrologist in Bangalore


Nephrology is essentially the study of kidneys, derived from the Greek words “nephros” meaning ‘kidney’ and “logos” meaning the ‘the study of’. A physician who is specially trained to obtain expertise in nephrology is called a nephrologist or a kidney doctor in plain terms. Nephrology is a medical specialty that deals with the study of normal kidney function, kidney diseases and their treatment, and renal replacement therapy procedures such as dialysis and renal transplant. Nephrology also deals with systemic diseases such as diabetes and autoimmune diseases that may affect the kidneys and kidney diseases such as renal osteodystrophy and hypertension that may cause systemic diseases.

Who are nephrologists and what do they do?

As aforementioned, nephrology deals with the diagnosis and treatment of kidney diseases and a nephrologist (kidney doctor) is a physician who studies and deals with nephrology. The nephrologist deals with the diagnosis and management of kidney disease.

Kidney diseases include:

  • Kidney stones
  • Acid-base disorders
  • Fluid and electrolyte disorders
  • Glomerular diseases
  • Mineral metabolism
  • Tubulointerstitial diseases
  • Acute kidney disease
  • Acute renal failure
  • Chronic kidney diseases
  • Chronic renal failure

A kidney doctor should have a good knowledge of medication and their clinical pharmacology, the management of diabetes and hypertension and their complications, the epidemiology of kidney diseases and infections involving the kidneys and the nutritional management for the prevention and treatment of kidney diseases.

Nephrologists have the expertise to preserve normal kidney function and treat kidney failure, so there is no need for patients with kidney conditions to be worried if they are consulting a proficient nephrologist.
