Acute Kidney Disease Treatment When You Need It

Acute Kidney Disease (AKD) is a sudden onset of kidney damage or failure, often reversible with prompt treatment. At Nephrology Consultants, we recognize the urgency of addressing AKD and provide comprehensive care to facilitate recovery and prevent complications.

Common examples of AKD include:

  • Acute Kidney Injury (AKI): A sudden decline in kidney function due to various factors.
  • Glomerulonephritis: Inflammation of the kidney's filtering units.
  • Dehydration-related Kidney Issues: Caused by severe dehydration leading to kidney stress.
  • Drug-Induced Kidney Damage: Resulting from the toxic effects of certain medications.

Some of the treatment and management options we offer include:

  • Fluid Replacement Therapy: Replenishing lost fluids to support kidney function.
  • Medication Adjustment: Ensuring medications are kidney-friendly and dose-appropriate.
  • Dialysis: Temporary measure to assist kidney function while recovering.
  • Identifying and Addressing Underlying Causes: Targeting the root cause of AKD for effective treatment.

Through our partnership with Evergreen Nephrology, a pioneer in kidney health solutions, and our extensive experience in pediatric nephrology, we ensure comprehensive care for patients of all ages.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between an acute and chronic kidney disease diagnosis?

Acute kidney disease is a sudden and temporary condition, often caused by factors like dehydration or medication. On the other hand, chronic kidney disease is a long-term condition that progresses over time and is usually caused by conditions like diabetes or high blood pressure.

What should I expect when undergoing a test for kidney function?

When undergoing a test for kidney function, you can expect procedures like blood tests, urine tests, and imaging studies to evaluate how well your kidneys are working. The results will help determine if there are any issues with your kidney function.

How do I know if someone is experiencing symptoms of acute renal failure?

Signs of acute renal failure include:

  • Decreased urine output
  • Swelling
  • Fatigue
  • Confusion
  • Nausea
  • Shortness of breath

If someone shows these symptoms, seek medical evaluation immediately.
