Nephrology deals with acute and recurrent diseases of kidneys which, contrary to urology, are treated with non-invasive procedures. These most often include kidney stones, nephrotic syndrome, kidney failure, diabetic nephropathy, urinary incontinence, pyelitis or urinary tract infection.
A nephrologist makes a diagnosis not only based on urine test but also on specialist examinations such as X-rays, ultrasonography, scyntygraphy, voiding cystourethrogram) etc. He/she is responsible not only for treatment of seriously ill patients but also for observation of people with an increased risk of kidney diseases. A nephrologist supervises the patient’s dialyses.
