Thanks for your query.
We need some more information before we can determine the severity of your kidney problem.
You need to do the following tests, if not already done:
1) Urine R/M and UPCR
2) Blood tests: urea, creatinine
3) Ultrasound of the kidneys

Based on the results we can offer you more suggestions.
Hope this helps
Good luck.
