Hello
It is very unfortunate that your father is suffering from kidney failure but the fact is,this is a progressive disease and eventually you have to go for dialysis and followed by renal transplant sooner or later.
There is no way by which you can treat this condition by medicines alone.
Keep in touch with your nephrologist and keep monitoring his condition.
Prepare yourself for the renal transplant.
Thanks
