MEDICAL SECOND OPINION

Nephrology

The medical field of nephrology focuses on identifying, treating, and managing kidney-related illnesses and disorders. Our highly qualified and experienced nephrologists provide various services at Medicana Health Group's comprehensive nephrology departments to help diagnose and treat kidney-related conditions.

To determine the underlying cause of kidney issues, our nephrologists are equipped to conduct various diagnostic tests, including blood tests, urine tests, imaging investigations, and biopsies. They also collaborate closely with other specialists, including urologists, for the best care.

The therapy of chronic kidney disease (CKD), characterized by a long-term decline in kidney function, is one of our nephrologists' primary services. Numerous underlying medical disorders, including diabetes, hypertension, and autoimmune diseases, might contribute to this. To stop further kidney damage from occurring, reduce the progression of CKD, and maintain the highest quality of life, our nephrologists will create a personalized treatment plan.

Our nephrologists also offer dialysis, a life-saving treatment for people with end-stage renal disease, which is a significant service. Hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis, two of the most popular types of dialysis, are provided by a team of highly qualified nurses and technicians under the direction of our nephrologists.

We also provide a variety of additional therapies and services to assist in managing kidney-related disorders, including kidney transplantation, hypertension management, and care for glomerulonephritis, a form of kidney disease brought on by harm to the filtering mechanisms of the kidney.

Our nephrologists are highly skilled and knowledgeable medical specialists who focus on identifying and treating a variety of kidney disorders and conditions, such as:


Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD)

A long-term progressive disorder called chronic kidney disease (CKD) causes the kidneys to degenerate and lose their capacity to operate correctly and steadily. Numerous conditions that harm the kidneys, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and others, might contribute to its development.

Few symptoms may be present in the early stages of chronic kidney disease (CKD), but as the condition progresses, patients may experience fatigue, appetite loss, and changes in urine production. Medical experts known as nephrologists treat and diagnose kidney-related illnesses such as CKD. They collaborate closely with patients to control symptoms, stop complications, and reduce the spread of the disease.

The nephrology departments at Medicana Health Group utilize the most up-to-date diagnostic and treatment methods to offer comprehensive care for patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). This helps to retain kidney function and maintain general health. Our teams of skilled nephrologists collaborate closely with patients to create individualized treatment programs that include each patient's particular needs and objectives.


Acute Kidney Injury (AKI)

An underlying disease may cause acute kidney injury (AKI), which is an abrupt and frequently reversible decline in kidney function. AKI is a critical medical disorder that needs immediate attention and strict monitoring since it can result in end-stage renal disease or permanent kidney damage.
AKI can be caused by a variety of conditions, including infections, some drugs, and insufficient blood supply to the kidneys. To identify the underlying cause of AKI, nephrologists at Medicana Health Group use various diagnostic methods, including imaging scans, blood and urine testing, and other procedures. Treatment options include medications to treat the underlying cause, fluid control to prevent dehydration and support renal function, and continuous monitoring of kidney function to guarantee proper recovery.

Glomerulonephritis

Glomerulonephritis, a form of kidney illness, is caused by inflammation and destruction of the glomeruli, or small filters in the kidneys. Symptoms include protein in the urine, frothy urine, elevated blood pressure, and edema. It is typically caused by the immune system attacking the glomeruli. In extreme circumstances, it may result in total renal failure, necessitating dialysis or kidney transplantation.

At Medicana Health Group, our nephrologists are skilled in diagnosing and treating glomerulonephritis using a range of methods, including biopsy, imaging, and laboratory tests. To address this complex and incapacitating condition, we provide a multidisciplinary approach that may involve medication, dietary adjustments, and other treatments as necessary.

Hypertensive Nephropathy


A form of kidney disease called hypertensive nephropathy is brought on by high blood pressure. Uncontrolled high blood pressure over time can harm the kidneys' blood vessels, reducing the kidneys' capacity to remove waste from the blood. This may cause toxins and fluid to accumulate in the body, causing signs and symptoms like edema, exhaustion, and shortness of breath. Along with increasing the risk of heart disease and stroke, hypertensive nephropathy can also proceed to more severe kidney conditions such as end-stage renal disease (ESRD).

Our nephrology divisions at Medicana Health Group provide complete care for individuals with hypertensive nephropathy. Our skilled nephrologists use the most modern diagnostic techniques and therapeutic approaches to manage and stop the disease's progression. This could entail making lifestyle adjustments, such as eating healthily, exercising frequently, and taking medication to control blood pressure and lessen the chance of future kidney damage. To support kidney function in severe situations, we also recommend renal replacement therapy, such as dialysis or kidney transplantation.


Nephrotic Syndrome


Nephrotic syndrome is a collection of symptoms that point to kidney injury. It happens when the kidneys lose their ability to filter waste from circulation efficiently. Waste products can accumulate in the body, producing a variety of symptoms, including swelling (edema), protein in the urine, and low protein levels in the blood. Numerous underlying diseases, such as glomerulonephritis, diabetic nephropathy, and lupus nephritis, can lead to nephrotic syndrome.

In the nephrology departments of Medicana Health Group, our professionals use cutting-edge diagnostic methods to identify the underlying causes of Nephrotic Syndrome and create a customized management plan to treat the condition and enhance kidney function. Our skilled nephrologists are dedicated to providing you with the best standard of care, managing your nephrotic syndrome, and preserving your general health and wellness.


Dialysis

Dialysis is a medical procedure to remove extra fluid and waste from the blood of people whose kidneys are no longer functioning correctly. It is a life-saving procedure that aids those with acute kidney injury (AKI) or chronic kidney disease (CKD) in maintaining their health and avoiding complications.

The two primary forms of dialysis are hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis. While peritoneal dialysis uses the lining of the abdomen as a natural filter, hemodialysis filters the blood outside the body using a machine. In both procedures, the blood is drawn from the body, cleaned of waste and extra fluid, and then returned to the body.

Since the nephrologists at Medicana Health Group have extensive training and experience in giving dialysis treatments, their patients receive the best care possible.
