Renal Disease Clinic - Kidney Center

We provide both long-term and short-term comprehensive care to patients with kidney diseases by using advanced technology and Renal Medicine Specialists, nutritionists, pharmacists, and specially trained nurses to assist the patients holistically. We provide recommendations for self-care and behavioral changes for the most effective treatment which Help slow down the deterioration of kidney and prevent complications from kidney degeneration.

Diagnosis

Patients at risk for kidney disease and those with chronic kidney disease should get following physical examinations and laboratory tests

Blood test

  • Blood tests to assess renal function
  •      - Determine the amount of urea nitrogen in the blood (BUN)
         - Determine the level of creatinine and estimate glomerular filtration rate (EGFR) based on the level of creatinine (the standard way to screen for chronic kidney disease or other kidney disorders)

  • Blood tests to assess complications of kidney disease
  •      - Complete blood count (CBC) with leukocyte ratios
         - Assess the composition of minerals in the body including Sodium, Potassium, Chloride, calcium, and Phosphorus
         - Assess the amount of protein in blood (Albumin)
         - Assess the level of cholesterol

    Urinalysis

  • Urinalysis and urine sediment (to detect chronic kidney disease and indicate the type of kidney disease)
  • Assess the ratio of albumin to creatinine leaked in urine
  • Assess the ratio of protein to creatinine leaked in urine
  • Protein levels in urine are important indicators of kidney disease. Patients with chronic kidney disease should be monitored continuously for proteinuria

  • Radiology

  • Renal ultrasound to examine the kidney size, kidney structure, ureter, and bladder
  • Computer tomography scan (CT scan)
  •      - To detect obstruction in the urinary tract, such as kidney stones
         - To assess the kidney size
         - To check for kidney cyst disease
         - To check for other symptoms such as renal artery stenosis


    Care for patients with kidney disease

  • The deterioration of kidney can be slowed down by controlling the causes of the kidney diseases including diabetes, hypertension, nephritis, kidney cyst disease, gallstones, and smoking, as well as controlling of protein level leaked into urine
  • We provide treatments of complications to kidney diseases such as anemia, abnormal level of minerals in blood etc.
  • Dialysis through the abdomen can be done to treat chronic renal failure. This method is to insert a tube into the abdomen to allow the insertion of the solution into the abdomen for a period of time before releasing it

  • Pharmaceutical services

    The pharmacists will take care of the medication of the kidney patients who often need to take multiple medications simultaneously

  • Provide knowledge about the medicine such as how to use the medicines, the effect on the body, side effects, and how to relieve the side effects.
  • Emphasize that patients take medications properly
  • Analyze and identify problems with the medication, for example, interactions between medications, repeated use of unnecessary medicine, allergic reaction to medicines, etc., and collaborate with the physicians to relieve side effects
  • Medication screening for patients treated by more than one doctor or with more than one disease
