What is nephrology?

As a branch of internal medicine, nephrology deals with kidney and hypertension diseases. Nephrologists diagnose and treat kidney disease and advise patients on how to protect themselves from them.

Basically, nephrology deals with prevention, diagnostics, conservative (non-operative) therapy and aftercare of kidneys – and hypertensive diseases. The implementation of all extracorporeal blood purification procedures (dialysis, apheresis, immunoadsorption) and the care of patients with a transplanted kidney also fall within the specialist field of nephrology.

Nephrology is much more than dialysis medicine on the contrary, the subject covers a wide range of topics. In addition, nephrology has many interfaces with other subjects . Interdisciplinary work is therefore part of everyday clinical practice for nephrologists.

Nephrologist is a professional title that is protected by professional law and may only be used by doctors who have successfully completed specialist training. Pediatric ephrology is an independent branch of pediatrics.

What does a nephrologist do?

Our kidneys are real all-rounders! They filter the entire amount of blood up to 300 times a day. In total, up to 1,800 liters pass through the kidneys every day. This corresponds to 1.5 liters of urine daily. If kidney tissue dies, regeneration is not possible. Kidney damage also affects other important organs such as the heart, lungs and brain. A broad education and close cooperation with geriatricians, cardiologists, diabetologists and rheumatologists therefore distinguish the work of nephrologists. Prevention, early detection, modern diagnostics and adapted therapies are of great importance, especially for the kidneys. A trusting doctor-patient relationship is crucial for successful treatment. Nephrologists need to get a comprehensive picture of the living situation of their patients. It&rsquo’s about finding the right treatment path together. This path begins in the nephrological consultation hour. Often a lot has already been done for the kidneys when patients change their lifestyle and eating habits. If that is not enough, the use of medication is suggested.
