Specialty Care for Kidney Disease, Hypertension

A nephrologist is a physician who has been trained in the diagnosis and management of kidney disease, such as:

  • Acute renal failure (a sudden loss of function)
  • Blood in the urine
  • Kidney stones
  • Chronic or recurrent urinary tract infections
  • High blood pressure (hypertension doesn't respond to medication)

Nephrologists help patients with:

  • maintaining healthy blood pressure
  • maintaining the right balance in electrolytes (chemical mix in fluids)
  • maintaining the right balance of fluids in the body
  • dialysis (treatment for kidney failure)

Kidney Dialysis

  • Kidney dialysis services are available at PeaceHealth's St. John Medical Center.

Test for Kidney Function

Some kinds of kidney problems can be diagnosed through blood calcium tests. Very low levels of calcium may cause muscle cramps or tingling. Very high levels may cause nausea, pain or frequent urination. Learn more in our online health library About Blood Calcium Tests
