Nephrologists offer medical treatment of kidney disease and high blood pressure. Many of their patients have kidney disease as a complication of diabetes.
Experts help to bring hard-to-treat high blood pressure under control through exercise, diet modifications and appropriate medications.
When kidneys begin to fail (stop working), the nephrologist helps prepare the patient for either dialysis or kidney transplantation. Urologists provide some diagnostic procedures and surgical treatment.
