Glomerular/Renal Parenchymal Disease Clinic Overview

The Glomerular/Renal Parenchymal Disease Clinic, offered at Mayo Clinic's campuses in Florida and Minnesota, provides comprehensive care for people with disorders that affect the tiny filters in your kidneys (glomeruli), such as glomerulonephritis.

Coordinated care

Your kidney doctor (nephrologist) collaborates closely with other specialists, including hypertension specialists and pathologists, to diagnosis your condition and develop an individualized treatment plan. They coordinate with you and one another to ensure that your visits are efficient and complete. They also work closely with your local doctor to coordinate treatment and follow-up care.

Advanced diagnosis and treatment

The Glomerular/Renal Parenchymal Disease Clinic offers advanced and precise diagnostic tests that can identify whether you have glomerular disease or renal parenchymal disease. Mayo Clinic offers diagnostic tools that are available at very few major medical centers. These advanced tools include specialized renal imaging, renal function studies and renal biopsies.

Services that help you manage your condition include convenient follow-up care options, such as mail-in urine and laboratory testing and portable blood pressure monitoring devices.
