Nephrology for Primary Care physician

Nephrology plays a vital role in primary care, as kidney health is integral to overall well-being. Primary care physicians routinely monitor kidney function by assessing serum creatinine levels and estimating glomerular filtration rate (eGFR). Nephrologists often address common kidney-related issues encountered in primary care, such as hypertension, chronic kidney disease (CKD), and kidney stones. Primary care providers are essential in detecting early stages of CKD, which can progress silently without symptoms. Controlling high blood pressure is crucial, as it is a leading cause of kidney disease. Primary care physicians prescribe antihypertensive medications and lifestyle modifications to protect kidney health. Maintaining proper fluid and electrolyte balance is crucial in various medical conditions, and primary care doctors are the first line of defense in addressing these issues. Primary care physicians are responsible for managing medications that may affect kidney function, ensuring proper dosing to prevent adverse effects.
