Kidney and bladder

The kidney maintains the balance of bodily fluids by cleaning and filtering the blood and excreting the waste as urine. Urine collects in the bladder before it is exits the body through urination.

Acute Renal Failure

Acute renal failure happens when the kidneys stop working. The kidneys normally filter waste products from the blood and help maintain the balance of water and electrolytes in the body. When they stop working, it is a medical emergency. But acute renal failure can be treated and the kidneys can recover.

Joining our online support group for acute renal failure will help you and your family deal with the stress of this condition and meet professionals and doctors who can help.

Bedwetting / Enuresis

Bedwetting is considered a medical problem only after a child is at least three years old. Almost 15% of children above the age of three continue to wet their beds, and more boys wet their beds than girls. Sometimes it can be the sign of an emotional problem, but most children stop it on their own before puberty.

Join our online group on bedwetting. Ask questions, get answers from other experienced parents and experts, and learn more.

Chronic Renal Failure

When the kidney is no longer able to clean toxins & waste product from blood, chronic renal failure occurs. It is the, otherwise, the gradual and progressive loss of the ability of the kidneys to function normally. The change is irreversible, and often, life-threatening.

Learn more on chronic renal failure and its implication, and network with doctors at Medindia’s support group on the subject.

Dialysis / Haemodialysis / Continuous Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis

In serious kidney disease, kidney function becomes woefully inadequate. In such a situation, it is by the process of "Dialysis" that waste products and excess fluids are removed from the blood. When this occurs using a machine is called hemodialysis, whereas dialysis using the natural filtering membrane of the body called "Peritoneum" is called Peritoneal Dialysis.

Want to learn more on the process of dialysis, its different types and its advantages and disadvantages? Get the lowdown on Medindia’s support group for dialysis.

Gallstones

Gallstones are formed in the gall bladder when the cholesterol or the bilirubin in bile (which is stored in the gall bladder) harden into stone-like crystals. When the stones reach become bigger than about 8 mm, the person will often have intense pain in the stomach and jaundice. The condition is life-threatening if it is not treated.
