Nephrology is a medical specialty that deals with the kidneys and many issues related to the urinary tract. Nephrologists specialize in helping you maintain your health. The nephrologists who are a part of The Southwestern Association of Nigerian Physicians can not only help the general public with their medical needs but can also unite Nigerian nephrologists in the southwest region together.

What Can a Nephrologist Help You With?

A nephrologist can diagnose and treat issues related to your kidneys and urinary tract, including kidney disease and cancer, hypertension, and renal failure. Typically, a urinalysis will have to be done to determine what the problem is. Once it is known, you can begin treatment. Nephrologists can help to diagnose and treat common nephrology issues including:

  • Chronic kidney disease
  • Kidney stones
  • Hematuria
  • Proteinuria
  • Acute kidney failure
  • Related cancers

Nephrologists go through years of schooling and training to be able to help you with your kidney and urinary system. This includes getting multiple degrees, undergoing rigorous, on-site training, and completing residencies. The kidneys are a complex area of your body, but you can rest assured knowing nephrologists are qualified to take care of you.
