Kidney Diseases

Kidney diseases, also known as renal diseases, encompass a wide range of medical conditions that affect the kidneys. The kidneys are the vital organs responsible for filtering blood, removing waste materials, and regulating various bodily functions. Here are the most common kidney diseases –

Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD)

  • CKD is a long-term health condition where the kidneys gradually lose their function with the passage of time.
  • The most common causes include diabetes, hypertension, and certain genetic conditions.

Acute Kidney Injury (AKI)

  • AKI is a sudden and rapid decline in kidney function, often caused by conditions like dehydration, severe infections, or certain medications.
  • Symptoms may include decreased urine output, fluid retention, and electrolyte imbalances.

Kidney Stones

  • Kidney stones are hard deposits that somehow form in the kidneys and can cause severe pain when passing through the urinary tract.
  • Factors such as dehydration, dietary habits, and genetic predisposition can contribute to their formation.

Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD)

  • PKD is a major genetic disorder characterized by the growth of fluid-filled cysts in the kidneys.
  • Over time, the cysts can enlarge, leading to kidney damage and dysfunction.


  • Glomerulonephritis is inflammation of the glomeruli, which are the filtering units in the kidneys.
  • It can be acute or chronic and may result from infections, autoimmune diseases, or other underlying conditions.

Nephrotic Syndrome

  • Nephrotic syndrome is a group of symptoms indicating kidney damage. However, it includes proteinuria (large amounts of protein in the urine), hypoalbuminemia (low levels of albumin in the blood), and edema (swelling).

Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs)

  • UTIs can affect different parts of the urinary system, including the kidneys.
  • Kidney infections (pyelonephritis) can cause symptoms such as fever, back pain, and discomfort during urination.

Renal Failure

  • Renal failure is the inability of the kidneys to adequately filter waste from the blood.
  • It can be acute or chronic and may require interventions such as dialysis or kidney transplantation.

Diagnosis and Treatment of Kidney Diseases

  • Diagnosis of kidney diseases involves a combination of medical history, physical examination, blood tests, imaging studies, and sometimes a kidney biopsy.
  • Treatment varies based on the specific condition but may include medications, lifestyle modifications, dietary changes, and, in severe cases, dialysis or kidney transplantation.

Again, early detection and management of kidney diseases are crucial for preserving kidney function and overall health. Individuals with risk factors, such as diabetes or hypertension, should undergo regular check-ups and screenings, and seek expert advice to monitor kidney health.

For me Dr. Amit Ghose turned out to be God. The way he treated my wife (32 years) was unremarkable. When I came to know about a bladder tumor and was worried, Dr. Ghose and his team did a commendable job.
