Nephrology & Hypertension

at the Fitzrovia Hospital

What is nephrology & hypertension?

A medical specialty focusing on the treatment of kidney problems and related conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes and renal cancer.

The Fitzrovia Hospital's Nephrology and Hypertension division is one of the most respected kidney and high blood pressure in London. We are proud to facilitate Consultant nephrologists who can help test, diagnose, and treat or manage your renal disorder in order to help improve your quality of life.

High blood pressure may affect up to 50% of the population.

It may be particularly problematic in patients with associated conditions such as diabetes, spinal injury or even in pregnancy.

It is important to ensure high blood pressure is properly controlled in order to prevent complications including stroke, kidney failure or heart attack.

High blood pressure may cause kidney damage and almost all patients with certain types of kidney injury suffer from high blood pressure. It is important that kidney problems are promptly investigated and treated. Kidney failure can be avoided by timely intervention and treatment in the majority of cases.

The diabetes and metabolism service provides care for all aspects of diabetes, thyroid disease, endocrine conditions, metabolic and calcium disorders, cholesterol and lipid disorders.

Type 2 diabetes is a major health problem in the 21st century with increasing rates of obesity, both increasing the number of patients affected and reducing the age at diagnosis. A variety of new treatments have become available in the last few years. Drugs that lower the blood glucose level in patients reduce the symptoms and the risk of long term complications.

The Fitzrovia Hospital programme aims to work with patients, whatever the stage of their diabetes, in order to prevent future problems. Fitzrovia Hospital offers a variety of facilities, supporting professionals and specialists to provide for all the needs of diabetic patients. In addition to consultations with their diabetic specialist doctor, diabetic patients often need to see a range of different specialists to prevent damage to the kidneys and high blood pressure (kidney specialist), to prevent damage to the eyes (ophthalmic surgeon), or to prevent injury to the feet (podiatrist).

Thyroid, endocrine, metabolic, calcium, cholesterol and lipid disorders

There are many other conditions, some common, some rare, which cause metabolic upset.

Disorders of thyroid function are relatively common, adrenal and pituitary disease less so. Calcium and bone problems including osteoporosis can be identified after bone fractures or kidney stones or are sometimes found by chance. High levels of cholesterol and fats (lipids) in the blood can predispose to heart attacks. We also see patients with disorders of sex hormones.

The Fitzrovia Hospital provides diagnosis and treatment for these very varied conditions.
