Chronic Kidney Disease

Nephrology refers to the field related to medical conditions of the kidney like chronic kidney disease. Our nephrologists treat people with a variety of kidney diseases, including those who have lost function or who must rely on dialysis or a kidney transplant.

At Illinois Kidney Disease and Hypertension Center, we also treat illnesses caused by abnormalities of the body’s water and mineral balance (electrolyte disorders), hypertension (high blood pressure) and diabetes-related kidney diseases. Check out the section on Nephrology for more information on how we diagnose, prevent and treat kidney diseases and their related conditions.
