PROFESSIONAL MEDICAL SERVICE OF NEPHROLOGY
At Daffodils, we have a group of dedicated specialists who are experts as well as internationally trained and qualified for treating Kidney disorders. General nephrology includes the management of patients with diseases which affect the kidney.
When should you see a Nephrologist?
Visit a Nephrologist after consultation with your general physician if you experience the following –
- Chronic Urinary Tract Infections: If you experience UTIs often, you are at greater risk for the infection to travel up to your kidneys. This puts you at risk of developing kidney disease, permanent kidney damage, or even kidney failure. Chronic UTI symptoms, especially blood in the urine, fever, and fatigue, can also indicate the early stages of bladder or kidney cancer.
- Recurring Kidney Stones: Kidney stones are mineral- or salt-based deposits inside your kidneys, and they cause a lot of pain when passing through your urinary tract. If you get a lot of kidney stones, your kidneys are likely not filtering waste properly and are letting deposits accumulate. Any such obstructions can begin to damage your kidneys and lead to chronic kidney disease.
- Foamy Urine: Foamy or bubbly urine means there is protein in your urine. This condition, called proteinuria, can happen from a number of causes, some being relatively harmless and others more likely to cause kidney damage. Only a high amount in protein along with other symptoms like muscle cramping, shortness of breath, and tiredness, and may indicate more moderate stages of chronic kidney disease or early kidney failure.
- Itchy Skin and Joint or Bone Pain: If you’re experiencing bone and joint pain along with itchy skin, you might have a condition called renal bone disease, also known as mineral and bone disorder. If untreated, this condition can lead to weakened bones, and heart and blood vessel problems.

One job of your kidneys is to filter waste from your blood. This cleaning process takes place in small blood vessels in the kidneys. If your blood pressure is too high, it can damage these blood vessels, making it hard for your kidneys to do their cleanup work properly.
Kidney stones develop when small deposits of calcium and/ or uric acid form in your kidneys. Some patients are predisposed to forming kidney stones and can benefit from a metabolic evaluation for this as they may need specific treatment to prevent further stones from forming.
Usually dialysis is needed when the GFR is less than 10-15ml/min and a patient has symptoms related to shortness of breath, confusion, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting and itching.
