Nephrology is the branch of medicine that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of kidney diseases. The kidneys are 2 bean-shaped organs that filter the wastes and toxins out of the blood stream and eliminate them through the urine. The kidneys maintain the body’s electrolyte balance, fluid balance and acid-base regulation, playing an important role in maintaining the stability of the metabolic system. Diseases that fall under the scope of nephrology include kidney and bladder infections, renal stone disease, nephrotic syndrome, cancer, vascular diseases, acute kidney injury and chronic kidney disease (kidney failure), polycystic kidney disease and auto-immune kidney diseases.
