General & Family Physician 's  Response
All labs refer to the direction of Renal Failure with low Hb, Increased Serum creatinine with albumin in the urine. You should have dialysis to prevent complications related to chronic renal failure such as altered level of conciousness. Also perform the renal scan for GFR estimation to check for remaining function of Kidneys. As your both kidneys are decreased in size that is labelled as Renal Atrophy.

Nephrologist Dr. Aditya Bhabhe's  Response
Thanks for the query.
Your blood tests and ultrasound results show that you have End stage renal disease. This means that there is very little chance of recovery.
You need to see a nephrologist ASAP who can then decide if you need to be started on dialysis right away or wait for a few days.
As you are quite young, a renal transplant would be the best option for you in the long run.
Hope this helps.
Good luck.
