Frequently Ask Questions.
Acute kidney injury can result from conditions or factors that reduce kidney function suddenly. Common causes include severe infections (such as sepsis), dehydration, kidney damage due to medications or toxins, urinary tract obstructions, major surgeries, blood loss, and certain medical conditions affecting blood flow to the kidneys.
Chronic kidney disease can have various causes. The most common ones include diabetes, high blood pressure (hypertension), glomerulonephritis (inflammation of the kidney filters), polycystic kidney disease (a genetic disorder causing cysts in the kidneys), kidney infections, urinary tract obstructions, and certain autoimmune diseases.
Dialysis is a medical procedure that helps remove waste products and excess fluid from the blood when the kidneys are unable to perform their function adequately. It is typically needed for individuals with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) or severe kidney failure. There are two types of dialysis: hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis.
A kidney transplant is a surgical procedure in which a healthy kidney from a living or deceased donor is transplanted into a recipient with kidney failure. Nephrologists work closely with transplant surgeons and play a vital role in the evaluation, pre- and post-transplant care, and long-term management of kidney transplant patients.
