Renal Diagnostics

by Carlo Raj, MD

The kidneys serve to regulate fluids and electrolytes, remove toxic metabolic waste products, preserve bone density and integrity, and maintain hemodynamic stability. Glomerular filtration and renal blood flow are vital for the proper functioning of the organs. We often measure these parameters using surrogate markers such as the creatinine clearance. Of course, every test has its strengths and limitations, and understanding these is critical to becoming a competent physician.

Particularly Dr Rajs has great way of explaining and very much captivates your attention, because he explains and seeing problems from many angles if you like , almost like a MRI scan.
