Nephrology is the medical specialty concerned with the functioning and diseases of the kidneys. Kidney disease can include: anemia, chronic renal failure, hypertension, diabetes, and high blood pressure. Some kidney diseases result from hereditary factors; if your family has a history of any kind of kidney problems, you may be at risk for kidney disease. Doctors diagnose and treat kidney disease using many different therapies, among which are changing diet and lifestyle, medication, surgery and dialysis.
