Tests, Treatment, Drugs and Diagnosis

Doctors collect 24-hour sample of urine to know the accurate filtering capacity of the kidney and amount of protein reduced due to some forms of kidney disorders. Nephrologists perform the other following tests to diagnose the kidney disease:

• Renal biopsy – performed to obtain tissue diagnosis of a disorder.
• CT scan – to diagnose nephrolithiasis.
• Ultrasound – scan the urinary tract.
• Angiography – also known as magnetic resonance is performed when blood vessels are affected.
• Scintigraphy – to get accurate measurement of renal function and MAG3 scans to diagnose renal artery disease.

Nephrologists cure some of the kidney disorders with medication like steroids, antihypertensives and disease-modifying antireumatic drugs. In case the doctor diagnoses complete kidney failure, he suggests for dialysis. The other option suggested by nephrology doctors is kidney transplant.
