Our kidneys help maintain normal salt and water balance in our body by removing the liquid waste from the blood. In an adult of normal weight (60-65Kg), about 1200ml of blood flows through both kidneys every minute (this is about 20-25% of heart output). Therefore, the normal functioning of the kidneys is critical for maintaining the body’s balance. Patients with kidney disease need quality care, guidance and hope. Medica North Bengal Clinic has a team of the best nephrologist in Siliguri who provide comprehensive nephrology services under one roof and develop an individualized treatment plan, keeping in mind the patient’s diagnosis and lifestyle.
