Centre for Nephrology

The number of kidney diseases is increasing due to increasing life expectancy. There are a number of reasons why a kidney may lose function. Common causes of kidney failure include reduced blood flow, high blood pressure, diabetes, poisoning, impaired urine drainage, inflammation or cysts.

In recent years, very good progress has been made both in terms of understanding individual diseases and in terms of therapy and prognostics. In particular, early detection of kidney diseases and targeted specialist medical care can significantly reduce the rate of progression.
