Dignity Health Medical Group Dominican provides compassionate help for nephrology patients.

Nephrology is a branch of internal medicine and pediatrics dealing with the study of the function and diseases of the kidney. Nephrology concerns the diagnosis and treatment of kidney diseases, including electrolyte disturbances and hypertension, and the care of those requiring renal replacement therapy, including dialysis and renal transplant patients. Many diseases affecting the kidney are systemic disorders not limited to the organ itself, and may require special treatment.

Dignity Health Medical Foundation nephrologists are skilled at identifying kidney conditions and determining if symptoms are caused by a systemic disease that needs specialized care. Nephrology also focuses on care for patients receiving renal replacement therapy.

Kidney disease symptoms may include:

  • Dry, itchy skin
  • Fatigue
  • Hypertension that is not easily controlled
  • Increased or decreased urination
  • Loss of appetite
  • Muscle cramps
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Swollen feet or ankles

Nephrology conditions treated

  • Acid-base disturbances
  • Hyponatremia (low sodium in the blood)
  • Hypo- or hyperkalemia (low or high potassium in the blood)
  • Kidney disease
  • Kidney stones
  • Nephrotic syndrome
