Once a kidney specialist has detected protein or blood in your urine (proteinuria), it is incumbent upon him or her to refer you to a kidney specialist. This is because proteinuria is one of the first signs of a kidney condition, ailment or disease. A kidney specialist is called a nephrologist. Only a nephrologist can provide the specific medical attention that is required for a patient with a kidney disease, especially since most kidney conditions, particularly chronic kidney disease (CKD), require ongoing monitoring, testing and treatment.
