Renal insufficiency – our treatment
Kidney disease is mostly chronic and progresses in different stages, which can ultimately lead to renal insufficiency, i.e. renal failure. Acute renal failure is also a common clinical picture, which can be caused by acute conditions, drugs or substances that are toxic to the kidneys. At Schoen Clinic Hamburg Eilbek, specialists from different disciplines work hand in hand to provide you with the best possible treatment for your renal insufficiency. On the basis of a detailed diagnosis of the exact causes of your renal insufficiency, you will usually initially receive drugs as your treatment. Other conservative measures, such as adjusting your diet, can also be helpful during treatment, even if renal failure itself cannot be cured by conservative therapies. At an advanced stage, renal insufficiency must be treated using dialysis. Our experts in Hamburg use modern peritoneal dialysis, in which a catheter is surgically inserted into your peritoneum, in addition to the usual short-term or long-term haemodialysis procedures. Your advantage: This permanent access allows you to easily undertake haemodialysis at home in the event of renal insufficiency.
