Kidneys filter waste from our blood and play a critical role in maintaining overall health. Detecting potential kidney issues early is crucial.  At CMC Hospital Dubai we are equipped with the latest diagnostic technology. An acute kidney injury can lead to sudden worsening in the kidney function that happens over a period of hours to days which can be a small change in renal function to complete failure and, depending on the cause, may be reversible.

  • Electrolyte Abnormalities: Any abnormality of the salts and minerals of the body including sodium, potassium, acid/base disorders, magnesium, and phosphorus.
  • Glomerulonephritis and Autoimmune Diseases of the Kidney: Genetic or acquired disease of the glomerulus, the part of the kidney that filters the blood.  There are many types of glomerulonephritis which can cause either a sudden or progressively worsening renal disease.

Diagnosing Kidney Disease

At CMC Hospital our Kidney Doctors in Dubai have access to the full range of advanced diagnostic tools to ensure you receive the appropriate diagnosis and optimal treatment plan.

  • Blood Tests – The first line in detection is often a simple blood test. Measuring creatinine and urea levels can indicate impaired kidney function. Electrolyte imbalances, such as high potassium or low calcium, also raise red flags.
  • Urine Analysis – A urine test checks for protein and blood cell presence, suggesting inflammation or damage to the kidney filters. Microscopic examination can further reveal abnormal structures, hinting at specific diseases.
  • Imaging & Radiology – Kidney ultrasounds reveal size, structure, and potential blockages in the Kidneys. CT scans and MRIs offer even more detailed 3D visualizations, aiding in diagnosing complex conditions like tumors or cysts.

Additional Diagnostics

  • Genetic Testing: Identifying gene mutations linked to hereditary kidney diseases allows for early intervention and family planning.
  • Biomarkers: Specific protein or DNA markers in blood or urine can pinpoint specific kidney diseases with improved accuracy.
  • Renal Biopsy: In rare cases, extracting a tiny tissue sample for microscopic analysis offers definitive diagnosis for complex or atypical cases.

Early detection is key to managing kidney disease effectively. Regular checkups and proactive health monitoring empower you to safeguard your kidney health.

Common kidney conditions include chronic kidney disease, kidney stones, kidney infections, glomerulonephritis, and polycystic kidney disease.

Symptoms of kidney disease can include fatigue, fluid retention, high blood pressure, difficulty concentrating, decreased urine output, and swelling in the hands and feet.

Kidney disease can be diagnosed through blood tests, urine tests, imaging tests, and kidney biopsies.

A nephrologist specializes in issues related to the kidneys. A urologist however specializes in conditions related to the bladder, penis, testicle, urinary tract and male reproductive system. Nephrologists are not surgeons, so they often work closely with Urologists who may need to perform kidney surgeries.
