Conditions We Treat

  • Acute renal failure

  • Electrolyte and acid-base abnormalities
  • Genetic and non-genetic renal diseases (e.g., polycystic kidney disease, Alport’s syndrome, glomerulonephritis, end-stage renal disease)
  • Hypertension and diabetes based kidney complications*

*It is important to note that hypertension and diabetes are the most common causes of kidney failure. It is very important to control hypertension and diabetes to slow down chronic kidney disease. Often Chronic kidney disease will also lead to hypertension.
