Chronic kidney disease includes a spectrum of diseases with both mild and more severe forms. Just because you were sent to see a nephrologist does not necessarily mean you need dialysis now or in the future.

ELECTROLYTE DISORDERS:

In addition to chronic kidney disease, we care for people with electrolyte disorders, or disorders of the blood chemistry. These problems may include an imbalance of sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, acid levels. This is another function of the kidneys.

At Greater Hartford Nephrology we offer expertise in the care of patients with hypertension (high blood pressure). In addition to blood pressure management, we may also look for other causes of high blood pressure. As part of our integrated hypertension service, we offer 24 hour ambulatory blood pressure monitoring to better understand the best way to manage your blood pressure.

 

KIDNEY STONES:

We also take care of people with kidney stones. We will review the type of stone you had and evaluate the urine chemistry to see what is increasing your chance to form kidney stones and offer ways to prevent them.
