What is nephrology?

Nephrology is a medical specialty focused on the kidneys. Your kidneys are bean-shaped organs that have the important job of sifting out waste and excess water from your blood, which becomes urine. The waste in your blood comes from the normal breakdown of the food that fuels your body.
