About Nephrologist

Nephrologists, also known as kidney specialists are medical specialists who study the diseases of kidneys as well as the diagnosis and treatment methods. This specialty is sometimes also called renal medicine. Nephrology lies within the field of internal medicine and is specifically related to kidney care. It is often connected with associated conditions like hypertension or high blood pressure.

Nephrologists in Karachi are medical professionals who diagnose, treat, and manage acute and chronic kidney problems and diseases. They also treat associated issues like high blood pressure, fluid retention, and electrolyte and mineral imbalances. In addition, kidney specialists are in charge of kidney dialysis treatment — both hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis — as well as kidney transplants and their follow-up care.

The conditions related to the kidneys are treated and managed by the nephrologist while all the concerns related to the ureter, urinary bladder, urethra, etc., are treated by a urologist. They both may work together in certain conditions to provide the optimum therapy to the patients such as recurring kidney and urinary tract stones or infections. 

The general physician may refer you to a nephrologist (Mahir-e-imraz-e-gurda) if any condition related to the kidneys is identified, for a properly detailed diagnosis and treatment protocol.

Which issues are treated by Nephrologists in Karachi? 

Nephrologists are kidney doctors who specialize in the diagnosis, treatment, and management of kidney disorders and diseases. Some of the diseases that nephrologist in Karachi deal with are:

  • High blood pressure: An increase in the pressure of the blood against the walls of the arteries can result in hypertension or high blood pressure. Prolonged hypertension can affect many body organs, including the kidneys. The associated kidney issues may be treated by a kidney doctor or a nephrologist.

  • Fluid retention: The inability of the kidneys to remove the excess fluid from the body results in the development of edema or fluid retention in the body causing swelling and pain in feet, legs, and hands.

  • Electrolyte imbalance: It is a disruption in the mineral ratio of the body that may affect different body organs. The imbalance in the electrolytes is attributed to kidney diseases that are treated by nephrologists.

  • Amyloidosis: It is the abnormal buildup of proteins known as amyloids in various organs of the body including the kidneys. It is a rare condition resulting in numbness in the hands or feet.

  • Nephrotic syndrome: In this condition, the nephrons or the filtering unit of the kidneys filter the waste and fluids insufficiently from the body. This disorder of the kidneys is known as Nephrotic Syndrome.

  • Renal insufficiency: It is a renal artery disease that develops due to insufficient blood flow to the kidney resulting from renal artery disease.

  • Chronic kidney disease: CKD or chronic kidney disease is when your kidneys are damaged and cannot filter the blood adequately. You might not have severe symptoms until the disease is in a more advanced stage.

  • Kidney failure: This is the late stage of renal or kidney disease during which the kidneys fail to filter the waste products from the blood.

  • Kidney damage from cancer: Several types of cancer or their treatments can damage your kidneys and cause scarring. Such conditions are managed by nephrologists.

  • Polycystic kidney disease: This happens when fluid-filled cysts grow in your kidneys. If not consulted with the nephrologist, it can result in high blood pressure and kidney failure.

You can book an appointment or consult online with the most experienced male and female Nephrologist in Karachi if you have any of these or other kidney-related issues.

When would you need to see a Nephrologist? 

Although a nephrologist (ماہرامراض گردہ) treats all the issues related to kidneys, you should see a top kidney specialist in Karachi especially if you notice any of the following symptoms or issues:

  • Blood or protein in the urine

  • Chronic kidney disease

  • Kidney stones (may also be treated by a urologist)

  • Kidney infection - characterized by painful urination, incomplete bladder emptying, etc

  • Kidney swelling due to glomerulonephritis or interstitial nephritis

  • A lump or mass in the abdomen kidney

  • Swollen ankles or fingers

  • Pain in the kidney region

  • Increased urination

  • Sudden weight loss

  • Poor appetite 

  • Nausea

  • High blood pressure

These are some of the symptoms that can be an indication of chronic kidney disease. The kidney doctor diagnoses the disease based on the signs and symptoms and develops an interventional plan to treat the issue with medication or other treatment options. A kidney specialist may also provide palliative care for end-stage kidney diseases for patients who are not responding to other treatments.

What services are provided by a Nephrologist?

Nephrologists are medical specialists who focus on the diseases associated with the renal (kidney) system. They diagnose the diseases by performing different diagnostic tests and some other minor procedures. The basic services provided by a nephrologist include;

  • Blood tests for checking specific parameters like serum creatinine, and GFR (Glomerular Filtration Rate) to measure the efficacy of the kidneys.

  • Urine tests like urinalysis detect the presence of blood, protein, or other substances in the urine.

  • Ultrasound: Clear picture of the kidneys to detect kidney stones, kidney growths, or cysts.

  • CT scan: It detects obstructions and abnormalities in the kidney.

  • Biopsy: Biopsy detects kidney damage, observes the response of the kidneys to the treatment, or detects complications associated with the kidney transplant.

  • Hemodialysis: End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) may require hemodialysis which is a machine-generated artificial flow of blood to wash the wastes and toxins from the kidneys and the body.

  • Kidney transplant: The whole or a part of the damaged kidney is removed and replaced by a donor’s kidney. The procedure is performed by the surgeons but requires the special assistance of a most experienced nephrologist.

In Pakistan, Nephrologists are doctors with the following qualifications

  • 5 years of MBBS degree followed by a house job

  • FCPS in the respective specialties of Nephrology

  • Practical experience

  • Post-graduation examination and training
