Nephrology and Therapeutics

Nephrology is a branch of medical science that deals with function and diseases of the kidneys and it focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of kidney diseases.

The kidneys are paired retroperitoneal organs that lie at the level of the T12 to L3 vertebral bodies. The kidney has a fibrous capsule, which is surrounded by pararenal fat. The kidney itself can be divided into renal parenchyma, consisting of renal cortex and medulla, and the renal sinus containing renal pelvis, calyces, renal vessels, nerves, lymphatics and perirenal fat. The renal parenchyma has two layers: cortex and medulla. The renal cortex lies peripherally under the capsule while the renal medulla consists of 10-14 renal pyramids, which are separated from each other by an extension of renal cortex called renal columns. The kidneys serve important functions, including filtration and excretion of metabolic waste products (urea and ammonium); regulation of necessary electrolytes, fluid, and acid-base balance; and stimulation of red blood cell production. They also serve to regulate blood pressure via the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system, controlling reabsorption of water and maintaining intravascular volume.

The kidneys also reabsorb glucose and amino acids and have hormonal functions via erythropoietin, calcitriol, and vitamin D activation.

Hypertension

Patients with all types of kidney disease and hypertension. This includes kidney stones, chronic or acute kidney diseases due to any cause, resistant or secondary hypertension, unexplained proteinuria or hematuria, cystic kidney diseases, inherited kidney diseases, fluid and electrolyte homeostasis abnormalities, pregnancy pregnancy related Kidney Diseases, vascular kidney diseases, nephrotic syndrome, glomerulonephritis, and others.High blood pressure (also called hypertension) occurs when the force of your blood against your artery walls increases enough to cause damage. For people who have diabetes or chronic kidney disease, blood pressure of 130/80 or more is considered high. Have a family history of high blood pressure. Your chances of developing high blood pressure may be increased if you: Have chronic kidney disease (CKD), Are overweight, Are African American. Use a lot of table salt, eat a lot of packaged or fast foods,Use birth control pills, Have diabetes,Use illegal drugs, Drink large amounts of alcohol (beer, wine, or liquor). Some types of kidney failure may cause high blood pressure. More often it is high blood pressure that causes kidney Diseases .

Diabetics

Diabetics is typically defined by macro albuminuria—that is, a urinary albumin excretion of more than 300 mg in a 24-hour collection—or macro albuminuria and abnormal renal function (Renal function test) as represented by an abnormality in serum creatinine, calculated creatinine clearance, or glomerular filteration  rate (GFR). Clinically, diabetic nephropathy is characterized by a progressive increase in proteinuria and decline in GFR, hypertension, and a high risk of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Diabetic nephropathy is a clinical syndrome characterized by the following: Persistent albuminuria (>300 mg/d or >200 μg/min) that is confirmed on at least 2 occasions 3-6 months apart ,Progressive decline in the glomerular filtration rate (GFR), Elevated arterial blood pressure. Proteinuria was first recognized in diabetes mellitus in the late 18th century. In the 1930s, Kimmelstiel and Wilson described the classic lesions of nodular glomerulosclerosis in diabetes associated with proteinuria and hypertension. By the 1950s, kidney Disease  was clearly recognized as a common complication of diabetes, with as many as 50% of patients with diabetes of more than 20 years having this complication Currently, diabetic nephropathy is the leading cause of chronic nephrology disease in the United States and other Western societies. It is also one of the most significant long-term complications in terms of morbidity and mortality for individual patients with diabetes. Diabetes is responsible for 30-40% of all end stage renal disease (ESRD) cases in the United States. Generally, diabetic nephropathy is considered after a routine urinalysis and screening for micro albuminuria in the setting of diabetes.

Genetics in kidney diseases

Renal cystic disease comprises a wide range of disease entities. They can be classified as either (1) hereditary or acquired or (2) systemic or renal confined diseases that have the common feature of multiple renal cysts. Each disease entity differs in its presentation, prognosis, and management. Renal cysts  are smooth-walled, fluid-filled circular structures formed by focal outpouching of renal tubules. The pathogenesis of cyst formation has not been entirely elucidated. However, tremendous strides have been made in recent years. For autosomal dominant and autosomal recessive polycystic polycystic kidney Diseases (ADPKD and ARPKD), a picture is starting to emerge. Defects in the primary ciliary sensing mechanisms, intracellular calcium regulation, and cellular cyclic AMP (cAMP) accumulation all seem to play a role in the altered cellular phenotype and functions.

Today, treatment includes risk modification, management of complications, and Acute Renal replacement Therapy or dialysis. There is no definitive therapy to eliminate or to retard cyst growth. A better understanding of its pathogenesis offers hope in the near future for correcting the underlying abnormalities in cystic pathways. Advances in genetic techniques are providing novel insights into kidney diseases (Hereditary Diseases), especially diagnosis, classification, pathogenesis and therapy.

Nephrology dialysis

Nephrology dialysis is the artificial process of eliminating waste (diffusion) and unwanted water (ultrafiltration) from the blood. Our kidneys do this naturally. Some people, however, may have failed or damaged kidneys which cannot carry out the function properly - they may need dialysis. In other words, dialysis is the artificial replacement for lost kidney function (Acute renal replacement therapy).Dialysis may be used for patients who have become ill and have acute kidney failure (temporary loss of kidney function), or for fairly stable patients who have permanently lost kidney function  When we are healthy our kidneys regulate our body levels of water and minerals, and remove waste. The kidneys also produce erthropoyietin and 1,25-dihydroxycholecalciferol (calcitriol) as part of the endocrine system. Dialysis does not correct the endocrine functions of failed kidneys - it only replaces some kidney functions, such as waste removal and fluid removal . Dialysis and altitude - A study published in February 2009 found that death rates for dialysis patients are 10%-15% lower for those whose homes are higher than 4,000 feet, compared to those who live at sea level. Some countries, such as the UK, are predicting a doubling of the number of patients on dialysis machine. Approximately 1,500 liters of blood are filtered by a healthy person's kidneys each day. We could not live if waste products were not removed from our kidneys. People whose kidneys either do not work properly or not at all experience a buildup of waste in their blood. Without dialysis the amount of waste products in the blood would increase and eventually reach levels that would cause coma and death. Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis is also used to rapidly remove toxins or drugs from the blood.

Nephrology Treatments

The kidneys are bean-shaped organs located on either side of the lower back. They are extremely important for the body in that they process waste and toxins before they are sent to the bladder as urine. If the kidney becomes damaged or fails completely, it becomes unable to properly process this waste. This lack of function causes Renal failure , also called Kidney failure. The kidneys play a vital role in maintaining every day bodily function. They not only filter the blood and get rid of waste, but they also balance out electrolyte levels in the body which help encourage the production of red blood cells and normalize blood pressure. Understanding what kidney failure is will help you better prevent it from occurring. Kidney failure, also known as renal failure, may not present many symptoms in the beginning. However, as the kidneys continue to decrease in function, they become unable to regulate water and electrolyte balances, clear waste products from the body, and promote red blood cell production which leads to the onset of symptoms including: lethargy, weakness, shortness of breath and occasional swelling. If left untreated, then life-threatening symptoms can occur, which range from heart failure to coma.

When kidney function gets significantly reduced due to kidney failure, the damage cannot usually be reversed. However, if the proper steps are taken early enough, then it could slow down the progress of kidney failure or even halt it altogether. The treatment for kidney failure differs depending on what phase the kidney failure is and other individual factors. For those whose kidneys no longer function well enough on their own without renal therapy, specialist will typically recommend either renal dialysis or a kidney transplant. There are two kinds of dialysis—Hemodialysis and Peritonel Dialysis (Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis). Dialysis does some of the things a normal kidney does, such as: removes extra water from the body and removes the waste products that have built up in the blood. Hemodialysis is usually done in a dialysis center; however there are some patients who use this therapy at home. Nurses and technicians do your dialysis treatment.

Home Therapies for Kidney care

Kidney Care aims to discover advances in health practice, management and education in relation to health disparities as well as a breadth of other topics, here are two types of administrators, generalists and specialists. Generalists are responsible for managing entire facilities. Specialists are responsible for particular department such as finance, accounting, budgeting, and human resources. The District Health System is recognised as the most appropriate vehicle for the delivery of health care. Health promotion is an important aspect of renal care. To attract patients and improve population health management, health systems are expanding primary care networks by adding non-traditional access points such as retail clinics, onsite clinics, e-visits, and hybrid clinic sites. Practitioners are encouraged to embrace innovation within their practice to further escalate the treatment process and improve patient outcomes.

Since no specific in alternative and Ayurvedic medicine for kidney can help treat kidney failure effectively, the best method is to combine them. Immunotherapy, as one great breakthrough in treating end-stage kidney disease, is just a combination of advanced western medical technologies and traditional herbal medicines.

Renal Transplantation

The Kidney is the most commonly transplanted organ from a living donor and the deceased donor transplantation is a transplant where the donated kidney takes from died person.  Immunosuppressive medications that help suppress the immune system. Pediatric Renal transplantation is accepted as the treatment option for children with final stage of renal disease. HLA and ABO incompatible transplantations conduct in end-stage kidney disease individuals. Hyperacute rejection usually takes place within the first 24 hours after transplantation. Chronic acute kidney rejection occurs months to years following transplantation.

Kidney treatment will depend on the stage of kidney diseases. Stages one, two and three can usually be treated. Treatment involves making changes to the lifestyle and, in some cases, taking medication to control the blood pressure and lower your blood cholesterol levels. This should help prevent further damage to the kidneys and circulation.

Types of surgeries for kidney cancer

The stages of kidney disease are determined by the glomerular filtration rate. Glomerular filtration is the process by which the kidneys filter the blood, removing excess wastes and fluids. Glomerular filtration rate (GFR) is a calculation that determines how well the blood is filtered by the kidneys. It is one way to measure kidney types.

They are Acute kidney disease is the sudden loss of kidney function that occurs when high levels of waste products of the body's metabolism accumulate in the blood. Chronic Kidney Disease is a gradual development of permanent kidney disease that worsens over a number of years. Pediatric Kidney Disease can affect children in various ways, ranging from treatable disorders without long-term consequences to life-threatening conditions. Polycystic Kidney Disease is characterized by the growth of numerous kidney cysts, which cause abnormalities in both the kidney structure and function. Hypertension Uncontrolled hypertension can damage many organs in the body including kidneys.

The purpose of the kidney disease diet is to limit the amount of protein in the diet so that less urea is produced.

Clinical Nephrologists

The kidneys are vital for life with their complex network of blood vessels and intricate network of tubes and tubules that filter blood of its waste products and excess water.The kidneys maintain the fluid, electrolyte, and acid-base regulation that are altered by several disease conditions as well as drugs and toxins. Nephrology is a specialty of medicine and pediatrics that concerns itself with the study of normal kidney function , kidney problems, the treatment of kidney problems and renal replacement therapy (dialysis and kidney transplantation). Nephrology deals with study of the normal working of the kidneys as well as its diseases. The diseases that come under the scope of nephrology include:-

Glomerular disorders that affect the tiny filtering systems of the kidneys called the glomerulus, Urine abnormalities such as excess excretion of protein, sugar, blood, casts, crystals etc. Tubulointerstitial diseases affecting the tubules in the kidneys, Renal vascular diseases affecting the blood vessel networks within the kidneys, Kidney failure that can be sudden or acute or long term or chronic, Kidney and bladder stones, Kidney infections, Cancers of the kidneys, bladder, and urethra, Effects of diseases like diabetes and high blood pressure on kidneys, Acid base imbalances, Nephroticsyndrome  and nephritis, Ill effects of drugs and toxins on the kidneys, Dialysis and its long term complications - dialysis includes hemodialysis as well as peritoneal dialysis, Autoimmune diseases including autoimmune vasculitis, lupus, etc. Polycystic kidneys diseases where large cysts or fluid filled sacs are formed within the kidney impairing its functions - this is a congenital and inherited or genetic condition.

Nephrology Nursing

Nephrology Nursing is a planned attempt to increase nursing knowledge by the discovery of new facts through systematic enquiry. It includes: Improvement in patient care, reduced cost of kidney care provision, Accountability and protection against litigation, Addition to the existing body of nursing knowledge, Enhancement of nursing as a profession.

Renal care nursing is the field of nursing with a focus on the most extreme consideration of the discriminatingly sick or unsteady chronic kidney patients. Contamination revultion and nursing consideration is the control concerned with turning away nosocomial or health awareness related disease, a functional (as opposed to scholastic) sub-order of the study of disease transmission. Infants who need escalated restorative consideration are regularly conceded into a unique region of the clinic called the Neonatal serious care and nursing consideration. The part of backing in discriminating nursing consideration: Critical consideration medical attendants work in a wide assortment of settings, filling numerous parts including bedside clinicians, attendant teachers, medical caretaker analysts, medical caretaker supervisors, clinical medical caretaker authorities and medical attendant professionals. Measurements of Renal Care Nursing's mission is to give attendants exact, current, and applicable data and lodging to exceed expectations in discriminating consideration rehearse.

About Nephrology

Nephrology is a specialty of medicine that concerns itself with the study of normal kidney function, kidney problems, the treatment of kidney problems and renal replacement therapy (dialysis and kidney transplantation). Systemic conditions that affect the kidneys and systemic problems that occur as a result of kidney problems are also studied in nephrology. A physician who has undertaken additional training to become an expert in nephrology may call themselves a nephrologist or renal physician.

A nephrologist is a medical doctor who specializes in care and treatment of kidney disease. Kidneys are essential to our health. Kidneys sit just below the rib cage, toward your back. The kidneys, two bean-shaped organs about the size of a fist, act as a filtering system for the body. They remove waste from the bloodstream and send it out of the body as urine, which passes out of the kidney through a tube called the ureter, and into the bladder Blood flows into the kidneys through the renal artery, and then into smaller components called nephrons. Each kidney has a million or more nephrons. Each nephron contains a filtering unit, called a glomerulus, and a tubule. The kidneys are normally very efficient and it can be a long time before there are signs that something is wrong. When kidneys are damaged or lose function over time, this is known as chronic kidney disease (CKD). The cleansed blood flows back out of the glomerulus and out of the kidney through the renal vein. Depending on the problem, early diagnosis and treatment can help slow down any further damage to the kidneys. Left unchecked, however, it can sometimes lead to kidney failure which requires treatment by dialysis or a kidney transplant.

Why Brazil??

According to recent statistics report, 1 in 9 adults in America, or at least 26 million Americans, have Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) and millions more are at increased risk. According to The American Society of Nephrology, the number of people diagnosed with Kidney disease has doubled for the last decade. I would strongly recommend blood and urine tests to detect early signs of the disorder. In USA 6 lakh deaths are due to kidney diseases. Every year, kidney disease kills more people than breast or prostate cancer. It is being acknowledged that throughout USA more than 17,105 kidney transplantations took place in 2014 alone. In 2015, 11,570 came from deceased donors and 5,535 came from living donors. Every day 12 people die while waiting for a life-saving kidney transplant. For every 14 minutes an individual is added to the renal transplant list. In 2014, 4,270 patients died due to increasing the lag time for a kidney transplant. Annually US spent $ 41 billion or 17% of their Medicare budget on people with kidney diseases.

Summary of World Nephrology Conference

World Nephrology deals with study of kidneys as well as its diseases like normal kidney function, kidney problems, the treatment of kidney stone problems and renal replacement therapy, CKD which are common like haemodialysis and kidney transplantation. Kidney function studies: Increased levels of blood urea nitrogen and creatinine are the hallmarks of acute renal failure. Systemic conditions that affect the kidneys such as diabetes and autoimmune disease and systemic problems that occur as a result of kidney problems such as renal osteodystrophy and hypertension are also studied in nephrology. A physician who has undertaken additional training to become an expert in nephrology may call themselves a nephrologists or renal physician.

8th World Nephrology Conference will discuss the latest technologies and therapeutic aspects developed for various kidney diseases which include renal transplantation, dialysis equipment’s and other procedures involved in treatment of Chronic Kidney Diseases and End Stage Renal Diseases. This year’s annual congress highlights the theme “Latest advancements and new-fangled techniques in Nephrology”.

World Nephrology 2016 is a remarkable event which brings together a unique and International mix of nephrologists and kidney specialists from leading universities and research institutions making the conference a perfect platform to share experience, foster collaboration across industry and academia, and evaluate emerging technologies across the globe.

According to recent statistics report, nearly 26 million adults apart from young and old aged people are suffering from Chronic Kidney Disease complaints and millions of others are at increased risk. The numbers of Kidney transplantations are seemingly very high and in the year of 2013 alone, there are around 15000 kidney transplantations. Due to the rapid increase for the risk of renal disorders, Nephrology 2016 aims to decrease the incidence rate of kidney disease through its international conference on nephrology and cordially invites participants across the globe to discuss and arrive under possible solutions for one of the major critical problems of mankind.

Scope and Importance of Nephrology Research

World Nephrology 2016 conference has been fostering the need to control the impact of permanent renal disease within the public health environment. The lack of a systematized control provided through a measurable program has greatly impacted on the level of hospital expense since they have increased their case-mix risk, family economies deteriorate and health care pays for a higher morbimortality that could be avoided with better surveillance and epidemiological control. Nephrology 2016 aims to bring together leading Researchers, Academicians, Physicians and Industrialists to exchange and share their experiences and research in order to decrease the incidence rate of kidney disease by new techniques and latest technologies.

This unique opportunity  to hear the latest discoveries and network with global experts to discuss improving patient care, Renal Data System trends, and key findings at an open forum for providers to share best practices discussions about reducing hospitalizations, improving volume control, increasing the PD patient population, nutritional management and sodium modelling, and CKD education. The Organizing committee of Nephrology conference takes the honour of inviting Renowned nephrologists, renal transplantation surgeons, immunologists, Diabeticians, physicians, World-class surgeons, Young researchers, Business delegates and talented student communities working in the field of nephrology to share their research experiences and indulge in interactive discussions at the event.

Why Brazil??

According to recent statistics report, 1 in 9 adults in America, or at least 26 million Americans, have Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) and millions more are at increased risk. According to The American Society of Nephrology, the number of people diagnosed with Kidney disease has doubled for the last decade. I would strongly recommend blood and urine tests to detect early signs of the disorder. In USA 6 lakh deaths are due to kidney diseases. Every year, kidney disease kills more people than breast or prostate cancer. It is being acknowledged that throughout USA more than 17,105 kidney transplantations took place in 2014 alone. In 2015, 11,570 came from deceased donors and 5,535 came from living donors. Every day 12 people die while waiting for a life-saving kidney transplant. For every 14 minutes an individual is added to the renal transplant list. In 2014, 4,270 patients died due to increasing the lag time for a kidney transplant. Annually US spent $ 41 billion or 17% of their Medicare budget on people with kidney diseases.

Market Value on Nephrology Research

The global nephrology market will grow from nearly $3.8 billion in 2012 to $4 billion in 2013. In 2014 to be worth $6.3 billion for a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 2.7%.This year, the global market for products used in the fight against kidney diseases will be worth an estimated $5.5 billion, according to a new technical market research report, the Global Nephrology Market, from USA Research. Market revenue is forecast to increase at a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8% from 2013 to 2018, totalling nearly $6 billion in 2018, and it is estimated that on an average 25% of the population throughout the world will be effected with Kidney Diseases by 2025.

Market Growth of Nephrology Research in the last and upcoming ten years

The growth in the number of training programs and slots has likely been driven by a variety of factors, including a perceived workforce shortage, efforts by both academic and private practice nephrologists to enhance their own workforce to meet clinical demands, and the laudable desire to develop and maintain teaching programs by both academic and practicing nephrologists. This increase in training slots has led to a dramatic increase in nephrologists. Between 2015 and 2020, nephrology grew more rapidly than any internal medicine subspecialty other than geriatrics. The increasing number of graduating trainees and practicing nephrologists may in the near future, if it has not already, lead to a sluggish job market for new trainees.
