The following are examples of common situations where referral to a nephrologist is required. While it covers most conditions, the list is by no means exhaustive:

  • Acute nephritis
  • Proteinuria
  • Unexplained haematuria
  • Renal failure
  • Diabetic nephropathy
  • Inherited kidney disease
  • Difficult hypertension

Please make use of our online referral form to refer your patients. If you simply have a question for Dr Jacobs, make use of the feedback/question form.

When in doubt, refer. It's better to refer earlier than too late. When chronic renal failure is diagnosed early, renoprotective measures may still be effective in slowing or arresting the relentless march to end-stage renal failure.
