Nephrology is a medical speciality that deals with the diseases related to kidney. Kidneys of a human body are used as filtering units. Usually, the kidneys of a healthy adult individual filter around 180 litres of blood daily to dispose the extra water and toxic material in form of urine. Any alteration or dysfunction of kidney causes acute or chronic renal (kidney) diseases which may cause damage of kidney even resulting to death.
Your Kidneys help maintain normal salt and water balance in our body by removing the liquid waste form the blood. In an adult of normal weight (60-65kg), about 1200m of blood flows through both the kidneys every minute (this is about 20-25% of heart output) Therefore, normal functioning of kidneys is critical for maintaining the body’s balance.

Common Causes of Kidney Diseases
What is Haemodialysis
Hemodialysis is a process by which blood is purified by taking it out of the body with the help of a machine and passing it through a Dialyser (Artificial Kidney). Blood is taken out of the body via a needle (A.V.F.). In the Dialyser,blood and dialyzing fluid flow on either side of a semi permeable membrane. This removes the toxic waste and excess water from the blood.The pure blood is returnedto the body.This process of takingout and putting inthe blood continues for 3-4 hours.The Dialysis has to be repeated at least 3 times a week,depending upon the patient's condition.
