Nephrology

Nephrology is a branch of internal medicine that specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of kidney disease. The kidneys are often affected due to metabolic disorders (diabetes mellitus, gout), cardiovascular diseases (increased blood pressure, atherosclerosis), rare autoimmune diseases (vasculitis, systemic lupus erythematosus, systemic scleroderma), which leads to the formation of chronic kidney disease of varying severity ... There are also "primary" kidney diseases, which are often asymptomatic and are often detected incidentally. Unfortunately, late diagnosis often leads to irreversible changes in renal function, so timely diagnosis is critical for quality of life and prognosis.

The most common diseases are:

  • Acute and chronic glomerulonephritis (membranous nephropathy, disease of minimal changes, focal segmental glomerulosclerosis, etc.).
  • Interstitial nephritis.
  • Kidney damage in systemic diseases (systemic lupus erythematosus, vasculitis, systemic scleroderma, storage diseases, etc.).
  • Congenital kidney disease (eg, polycystic disease).

The opinion of a nephrologist is relevant for choosing the tactics of managing patients with cardiovascular diseases, diabetes mellitus, and hyperuricemia.

Due to the involvement of the kidneys in many metabolic processes, their pathology is additionally characterized by a decrease in hemoglobin, fragility of bone tissue, an increased risk of thromboembolic complications, which requires a comprehensive approach to therapy. We also help our patients choose nephroprotective therapy, optimize the immunosuppression regimen, and reduce the severity of side effects from taking medications.

I would like to thank Natalya Vasilievna for the treatment! The singing reception was remembered for the attentive attitude and determination to find out in detail not only my complaints, but also my general condition. I was prescribed several tests, while explaining what why and why. After repeated admission, I already had a treatment program on hand, which, as a result, had an effect. Best regards, Leonid Petrovich.
