Nephrology

Nephrology is the specialty of medicine focused on the kidneys, specifically normal kidney function and kidney disease, the preservation of kidney health, and the treatment of kidney disease, from diet and medication to renal replacement therapy, such as dialysis.

Nephrology also studies systemic conditions that affect the kidneys, such as diabetes and autoimmune disease, and systemic diseases that occur as a result of kidney disease, such as renal osteodystrophy and hypertension. A physician who has undertaken additional training and become certified in nephrology is called a nephrologist.
