Disorders of the renal system, including the kidneys and urinary tract, are increasingly recognised as a public health concern, accounting for 830 000 deaths worldwide. Patients often have comorbidities, with many presenting with other diseases. Health professionals require good knowledge of the renal system and associated disorders to create holistic care plans to meet individual patients' needs. This article covers the pathophysiology of some of the most common problems, patient assessment and investigations, and considerations in helping patients with self-management.
