Most people think that until and unless there is no emergency, no need to go to a specialist doctor. They go to their primary doctor, too in case of emergency. And if he refers them to the Nephrologist, then only they visit them. Typically, to visit a nephrologist means that you are having kidney-related symptoms from an unknown cause or that you have health issues. And a renal specialist only knows how to treat. You could be referred to a nephrologist if you have the following signs or symptoms:

Chronic Urinary Tract Infections

If you get a lot of urinary tract infections or UTIs, which are generally bladder infections, you are at greater risk for the infection to travel up to your kidneys. This may put you more at risk of developing kidney disease, permanent kidney damage, or even kidney failure as well. Chronic UTI symptoms, especially blood in the urine, fever, and fatigue, can also be an indication of the early stages of bladder or kidney cancer.

Recurring Kidney Stones

Kidney stones are salt-based deposits or minerals inside your kidneys, and they create a lot of pain when passing via your urinary tract. If you get a lot of kidney stones, it means, that your kidneys are likely not filtering waste properly and are letting deposits accumulate.

You may also develop kidney stones that start to block glomerular filtration, which is a part of the urination process, and lower the filtration rate. Any obstructions could begin to damage your kidneys and lead to chronic kidney disease.

Foamy Urine

Sometimes you have foamy or bubbly urine, which means there is a protein in your urine. This condition is called proteinuria and can happen from several causes, some being relatively harmless and others more likely to cause kidney damage. Your urine generally has a bit of protein waste in it, but this protein will pass unnoticed. But if you have a high amount of it in urine, you begin to see foam or bubbles in the urine.

This protein disease can accompany other symptoms such as muscle cramping, and shortness of breath, and may indicate more moderate stages of chronic kidney disease or early kidney failure. Our doctors will do a series of blood tests, such as blood urea nitrogen, serum creatinine, and protein-creatinine ratio, to check your blood and kidney health.

Itchy Skin and Joint or Bone Pain

If you're suffering from bone and joint pain along with itchy skin, you may have a condition called renal bone disease, also known as mineral and bone disorder. This condition may occur alongside kidney disease, and it happens when the kidneys are not able to maintain the amount of calcium and phosphorus your bones need. If it is untreated, this condition can lead to weakened bones, and heart and blood vessel problems.
