Urologist Dr. Rajiv goel's  Response

Uric acid problem can be easily dealt with by the use of medications. As far as the non functional kidney is concerned you need to see whether there is swelling on the kidney; what is the possible etiology and whether this kidney has the potential to cause any problem in future. You should probably see a urologist and he shall be in position to answer all these questions for yourself.
