Nephrology & Dialysis

Nephrology is a subspecialty of medicine that concentrates on the investigation and management of normal kidney function and kidney diseases, including acute and chronic renal failure, electrolyte imbalance, hypertension, renal stones, protein, urea, hematuria, etc. It also deals with systemic conditions that affect the kidney such as diabetes and autoimmune disorders.

The key function of the kidneys focuses on the filtration of waste materials, regulating minerals from the blood and maintaining the fluid balance of the body. Another important function of the kidneys is the production of hormones that regulate blood pressure and produce red blood cells. In the event that they are no longer capable of performing these vital functions, accumulation of waste material and fluid imbalances, among other problems arise, leading to life-threatening health conditions.

Shifa Nephrology & Dialysis center is at the forefront of serving patients with kidney diseases, providing personalized and integrated care for acute and chronic kidney diseases, hypertension,end-stage renal disease, etc.
