Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have bilateral Paranchymal disease of the kidney.
Paranchymal kidney disease is suggestive of disease of the cortex of the kidney which is the main functioning part of the kidney and regulates water ,electrolyte balance and eliminates waste products from the body and promotes production of red blood cells in blood.

It is a progressive major disease and is incurable but can be kept under control for few years.
The main symptoms include Loss of appetite, diminished urine output,swelling of the body(Oedema) ,anaemia,fatigue,and raised creatinine in blood etc.

Please consult qualified Nephrologist for clinical evaluation and further treatment.
