Nephrology is a branch of internal speciality that deals with the functioning and diseases related to the kidneys. Kidneys help in removing waste and excess fluid from a person's blood and maintaining the body's electrolyte balance. Any alteration or dysfunction in the physiology and anatomy of the kidney can cause acute or chronic renal kidney diseases.
