Urinary System Injury

Kidney and urinary tract diseases are a common problem in the Australian community. There are different forms of kidney disease which cause damage to the kidneys, as well as other disease processes, like diabetes and high blood pressure, which can affect the kidneys. The range of severity of kidney disease is wide, from kidney stones which hardly ever lead to long term problems at one end of the scale, to end-stage kidney failure requiring dialysis or transplantation at the other end of the scale.
