Compassionate Treatment for Advanced Kidney Disease

Nephrologists are physicians who can expertly diagnose and treat various kidney diseases and disorders. When caught early, kidney disease is much more manageable and decreases the rate of its progression. Services are provided at Henry County Hospital by Nephrology Associates.

What Is Nephrology?

Nephrology is the medical specialty that focuses on treatments for kidney conditions and diseases to keep the body in better balance. Kidney disease, whether acute or chronic in nature, often goes unnoticed until it has become quite advanced. The non-specific kidney disease symptoms make detection a huge challenge, which is why those with high risk factors should have regular, routine blood and urine tests to check for signs of kidney dysfunction.

What Are the Kidneys?

The kidneys are two bean-shaped, fist-sized organs that carry out many important bodily functions such as excretion of waste and excess fluid through urine production. Among their other functions, the kidneys also release hormones that regulate blood pressure while disposing of excess bodily acids.
