Nephropathology is a medical sub-specialty of pathology which deals with the diagnosis, management, and prognosis of renal diseases. Pathologic features of diseased kidneys include loss of renal cells, fibrosis, proteinuria, and hypoxia. Nephrosis is a common type of kidney disease characterized by non-inflamed kidneys whereas Nephritis is characterized by inflamed kidneys. There are several causes of kidney failure such as increased use of analgesics, diabetes, diet, and toxicity of chemotherapeutic agents. Implantable artificial kidney transplants are done to restore normal functioning of the kidney which is a better alternative to Dialysis. A renal dietitian monitors the dietary intake of the patients to manage toxin and water control. Smoking and alcohol should be avoided to prevent renal diseases. A healthy diet with high fibrous content should be followed to maintain the health of kidneys.
