Who can consult?

Protein leakage in the urine can be a sign of serious underlying illness and can lead to kidney failure in the long term. A kidney biopsy may be needed for correct diagnosis. If diagnosed early, it can be cured completely.

Patients with lesser elevations in blood creatinine levels may have no symptoms till 85-90% of the kidneys are damaged. When detected in this stage, treatment can delay the progression to dialysis/end stage kidney failure. Proper advice at this time is very important as this stage is usually neglected due to lack of symptoms. Dr. Venkatesh is one of the best nephrologist in Chennai for the treatment of this condition.

People with very high creatinine levels in the blood suggesting late stages of kidney disease who will need dialysis or kidney transplantation. The patients will be guided about the best medical treatment plan for each of them. The ultimate aim is to keep the patient in optimum health in spite of renal failure (“kidney failure”).

Patients already on dialysis will need attention to a lot of factors (quality of dialysis, regular blood tests and check-up, proper dietary advice, maintaining good hemoglobin levels, etc) and can expect world class care under Dr.Venkatesh. Also, patients planning to undergo kidney transplantation will be properly counselled and guided throughout the procedure.

Kidney transplantation is the definitive treatment of kidney failure needing dialysis. Dr.Venkatesh is an expert in this field who has done more than 350 transplants.

  • Patients on hemodialysis with difficulty in doing dialysis.
  • Dialysis AV fistula is not working.
  • Swelling of the fistula arm.
  • Dialysis fistula block.

Many people with risk factors for kidney failure are completely unaware of the status of their kidney function. It is very important to regularly test people with risk factors, so that, kidney disease can be detected in the earlier stages. The most important risk factors for chronic kidney disease are :

    • Diabetes of any duration
    • High blood pressure
    • Family history of kidney disease
    • Presence of heart disease
    • Smoking
    • Obesity
    • Age more than 55 years
