Kidney Specialist


Kidney Specialist in Los Angeles, CA

As many as 37 million Americans are living with some form of chronic kidney disease (CKD). If you are experiencing some symptoms such as bloody urine or increased urination, you must consult with an experienced nephrologist, such as Dr. Victor Carabello, today. Dr. Carabello has been in private practice since 1998 and can treat many kidney issues at his office in Los Angeles, CA. Our experienced staff can not only help treat kidney disease but also treat or prevent issues that lead to CKD such as diabetes and hypertension.

How a Kidney Specialist Can Help You?

The kidneys play a vital role in our bodies. Both of our kidneys are responsible for removing waste from the blood, releasing hormones, and maintaining electrolyte balance.

When you have issues with your kidneys, an experienced nephrologist may screen for protein in the urine, or check your blood pressure. Our office may order blood tests for creatine or nitrogen presence. Dr. Carabello and his staff will also monitor dialysis treatment for patients whose kidneys can no longer cleanse the blood.

Our office can help you with a range of issues related to the kidney. Dr. Carabello and his team offer the following services:

  • Kidney Transplant
  • Polycystic Kidney Disease
  • Hypertension
  • Diabetes (This is the #1 cause of renal failure in the US)
  • CKD
  • Dialysis
  • Glomerulonephritis
  • Lab Work
  • Ultrasounds

When Should I See a Nephrologist?

When you visit your primary care doctor, the reasons for your ailments may still be unresolved after testing. So you may also be referred to a nephrologist, such as Dr. Carabello if you have these issues:

  • Kidney disease caused by heredity
  • Chronic Kidney stones
  • Protein and excessive blood in the urine
  • Advanced CKD
  • High blood pressure unresponsive to treatment
  • Foamy urine
  • Anemia - which also causes lethargy
  • Dry and itchy skin
  • Excessive nighttime urination
  • wollen ankles and feet

Dr. Carabello will monitor your high blood pressure because hypertension narrows the blood vessels. This constriction damages the blood vessels in the kidneys and the rest of the body. A damaged kidney won’t be able to remove extra bodily fluid or waste. As a result, not only is the body poisoning itself, but your blood pressure will continue to rise and cause other problems. According to The National Kidney Foundation, high blood pressure is the 2nd highest cause of kidney failure in the US.

Kidney disease and its underlying issues are a major health concern that should be managed properly. If you need a compassionate nephrologist, call Dr. Carabello at 323-526-2880 to schedule treatment or screenings for kidney issues at his private practice in Los Angeles, CA.
