Nephrology is the study of the kidney—its anatomy, physiology and pathology. Kidneys work to remove waste from the body, cleansing the normal waste that accumulates in body fluids and regulating essential chemicals and hormones. Diseases such as diabetes and hypertension can seriously impair the kidneys’ ability to function and can even lead to kidney failure. But proper medical treatment can help prevent or manage kidney disease.
