About the Journal

Journal of Kidney is a peer reviewed-open access journal. Its main aim is the development of scientific community internationally by publishing world class articles related to kidney’s functions, disorders, diagnosis and treatment. It welcomes research articles, review articles, commentary articles, short communications, case reports, clinical image articles, conference proceedings etc. The journal gives full freedom to the authors to put their views and ideas through their manuscripts. The articles accepted in Journal of Kidney support journal’s goals to associate clinical physicians with the researchers. These articles highlight new discoveries and research that are majorly going in the field of Clinical Nephrology.

Journal of Kidney welcomes manuscripts related to surgeries, procedures, treatment methods, Glomerular Diseases, Glomerular Filtration RateHaemodialysisKidney Abnormalities, Renal failureKidney Transplantation, Kidney Cancer, Diabetic Kidney Disease, Hemorrhagic cystitis, Acute Tubular Necrosis, Analgesic Nephropathy, Angiotensin, Chronic kidney Disease, Cryoglobulinemia, CytoscopyIgA Nephropathy, Acupuncture Kidney Points, Microscopic Polyangiitis, Osmotic diuresis, Nephroptosis, Polycystic Kidney Disease, Pyelonephritis, Radiation Nephropathy, Renal Failure, Urinary Tract Infections.

Glomerular Disease

Glomerular Disease is the retention of toxins and excretion of red blood cells and proteins out of bloodstream. Glomerular diseases are classified into glomerulonephritis and glomerulosclerosis. Diagnosed by urine, blood, imaging tests and kidney biopsy.

Kidney Abnormalities

Kidney Abnormalities can be tested by various blood tests, kidney biopsy, imaging tests and urine tests. Serum creatinine, blood urea nitrogen and glomerular filtration rate are under blood tests. Urine tests include urinalysis, urine protein, creatinine clearance and micro albuminuria. Ultrasound and CT scan are imaging tests.

Kidney Cancer

Kidney Cancer is the disease in which tumours start in kidney cells and become malignant growing out of control appears in the tubules of kidney. Two types of renal cancer are renal cell carcinoma and transitional cell carcinoma of renal pelvis.

Polycystic Kidney Disease

Polycystic Kidney Disease is inherited kidney disorder causing formation of full-filled cysts in the kidney. Cysts occurs in various sizes and are round sacs contain water-like fluid and are noncancerous. Two types of PKD are autosomal dominant and recessive types.

Kidney Transplantation

Kidney Transplantation is the process of placing a healthy kidney which takes over the work of cleaning blood through an operation or a surgery in patients with end stage renal disease. It is classified as living donor transplantation or deceased donor transplantation on the source of organ of the donor.

Glomerular Filtration Rate

Glomerular Filtration Rate, the measure of kidney function is the test to describe the flow rate of filtered fluid (how much blood passes) from glomerular capillaries into bowman’s capsule of the kidney. Glomeruli of kidney purifies blood. GFR is calculated by creatinine filtration rate.

Uremia, produced by the toxic effects of abnormally high concentrations of nitrogenous substances in the blood as a result of the kidney’s failure to expel waste products by way of the urine. Uremia can result from any disorder that impairs the functioning of the kidneys or that hinders the excretion of urine from the body.The end products of protein metabolism accumulate in the blood but are normally filtered out when the blood passes through the kidneys.

Renal Failure

Renal Failure is the condition of kidney unable to filter wastes from the blood. Acute and chronic renal failure are the two forms of kidney failure. It may leads to abnormal heart rhythms, weakness, confusion, shortness of breath, lethargy or even sudden death.

Angiotensin a peptide hormone causes constriction of blood vessels is a part of renin angiotensin system. It stimulates the release of aldosterone which promotes sodium retention in distal nephron of kidney. Types of angiotensin are angiotensin I, II, III and IV.

Chronic Kidney Disease

Chronic kidney or renal disease is a gradual damage or loss of kidney function over time. In chronic kidney disease excess fluids, electrolytes remains in blood and wastes build up in the body. Symptoms include being unwell and reduced appetite.

IgA Nephropathy

IgA Nephropathy or berger’s disease is the disease that damages the glomeruli due to abnormal deposition of IgA protein antibodies in them, is the most common form of glomerulonephritis.It causes local inflammation decreasing kidney’s ability to filter excess water, wastes and electrolytes from blood.

Microscopic Polyangiitis

Microscopic Polyangiitis is an uncommon disease characterised by inflammation of small and medium sized blood vessels of the kidneys leading to functional damage of the kidneys. Common symptoms include inflammation of kidney, weight loss, skin lesions, nerve damage and fevers.

Analgesic Nephropathy

Analgesic Nephropathy is the kidney injury caused by over exposure to analgesic medications over a long period of time which are excreted only through kidneys. Various analgesics are aspirin, paracetamol, phenacitin and phenacitin combinations.

Fanconi Syndrome

Fanconi Syndrome is the dysfunction of kidney proximal renal tubules (caused by drugs or heavy metals) in which amino acids, glucose, bicarboantes, uric acid and phosphates are passed into the urine instead of reabsorbing. Common causes are galactose, glycogen, fructose and cysteine.

Osmotic Diuresis

Osmotic Diuresis is the increased urination due to certain non absorbable substances causing retention of water within the lumen in kidney tubules. It is caused by high blood glucose, urea and medications such as mannitol, excretion occurs with the entry of these substances.

Diabetic Kidney Disease

Diabetic Kidney Disease or diabetic nephropathy is the damage of blood vessels in the kidney resulting improper cleaning of blood. High levels of blood sugar makes kidneys work more can damage the system. Retention of salt and water causes weight gain and ankle swelling.

Nephrocalcinosis is a condition in which calcium levels in the kidneys are increased. Most often, the increase in renal calcium is generalized, as opposed to the localized increase observed in calcified renal infarct and caseating granulomas of renal tuberculosis. Determined by the underlying etiology, though in many cases, the condition remains asymptomatic and is identified only as a radiologic abnormality.

Nephroptosis or floating kidney or renal ptosis or prolapsed kidney or wandering kidney is the condition where kidney drops down from normal position into the pelvis when a person stands upright or lies flat. It occurs more in women. Kidney descends more than 5cm or 2 vertebral bodies.
