Department of Kidney Transplant

Kidney Disease

Department of Kidney Transplant at Gleneagles Hospital is one of the best kidney transplant hospitals in Mumbai, providing world-class service from beginning to end. The kidney is a vital organ required for the proper functioning of our body. Its function is to remove toxins from the blood and clean it. It eliminates toxic wastes like ammonia and urea and makes sure that these toxins are flushed out from the body. It also helps in the regulation of blood pressure along with the stimulation of red blood cells by releasing the hormone erythropoietin.

Kidney malfunction can have severe effects on the body’s overall functioning and is also known as renal failure. If renal failure is chronic, renal disease occurs, necessitating either dialysis or renal transplantation. A person undergoes a kidney transplant surgery when their kidney function level drops to less than 20%.

A Renal Transplantation team involves the following members: a transplant surgeon to perform the surgery, a nephrologist who works closely with a highly trained nurse for coordinating your appointments. A pharmacist, a part of the team, takes care of your medicines and helps avoid unsafe medicine combinations. A dietician supervises the food you intake and helps you devise healthy meal plans. 

Diagnosis of Kidney disease

Kidney failure or renal failure is caused due to several reasons like internal damage to kidneys, consumption of toxins or acute dehydration. We are proud to say that we are the best hospital for treating kidney failure in Mumbai and have a team of the best specialists for kidney transplant in Mumbai to assist you.

While kidney failure may look like a singular dysfunction, it also affects other body systems. Thus, it is important to diagnose renal failure as early as possible. Our centre provides facilities for early detection and rectification of kidney malfunction. Our team will help you manage various health conditions like: 

  • High Blood Pressure:Rapid blow flow in the kidneys may lead to constriction of blood vessels, leading to high blood pressure. There may be water retention in the blood that swells up your vessels, resulting in high blood pressure. Moreover, high blood pressure may also be a result of renal failure. 
  • Heart disease:Since both kidneys and heart deal heavily with blood, malfunction in one is bound to affect the other. Thus, people with kidney malfunction are at a high risk of heart disease. 
  • Anaemia:With erythropoietin production affected, the RBCs are not produced in sufficient amounts leading to anaemic conditions. 

All the above conditions and developments can be controlled if your dietician prepares proper meal plans and schedules. You get your medicines reviewed by your doctor at regular intervals. 

  • What are the Symptoms of Kidney Failure?
    Various symptoms can be observed which indicate renal failure. Some of the generic symptoms include:
    decreased urine output
    swelling in limbs due to water retention
    difficulty in breathing.
    In the advanced kidney failure stages, the symptoms include:
    the appearance of foam in the urine
    loss of sleep
    loss in weight
    If any of the above symptoms are seen, you should fix an appointment with us.
  • How is Kidney Failure diagnosed?
    The first step towards diagnosis involves a quick chat about family history with the doctor and discussing the observable symptoms. Some various tests and procedures followed are:
    Blood tests – for checking kidney function.
    Urine tests – urine is analyzed for any abnormalities.
    Ultrasound may also be performed as an imaging test.
    An autopsy can also be done as a diagnostic procedure.
    While a kidney transplant seems like the solution to all your renal problems, after-care is also important. There may be a need for dialysis in the initial stages after the transplant has been performed as a precautionary measure until the donor’s kidney starts fully functioning.
