When should I call the doctor?

A nephrologist (kidney specialist) receives special training in kidney evaluation and treatment. You may benefit from a kidney specialist’s expert opinion if:

  • You have trouble keeping your blood pressure levels in a normal range, even with medication.
  • Your blood sugar levels fluctuate (go up and down) widely.
