Nephrology is the branch of the medical practice of adult internal medicine and pediatric medicine that deals with the study of kidneys, their treatment, and preservation of kidney health. It also studies the factors affecting kidneys (diabetes and high blood pressure), systemic diseases like hypertension, renal osteodystrophy. Many diseases that affect the kidneys often are not limited to the organ itself, they affect other organs in the body and can cause lupus, urinary tract infections (UTI), and polycystic kidney disease which require special treatment. Many treatments associated with kidney include kidney dialysis, fistula management, kidney, and bone biopsy. Tests and procedures to determine the diagnosis of kidney diseases are blood tests, urine tests, ultrasound imaging tests, and kidney biopsy to remove a sample of kidney tissue for testing.
