It is difficult to make a failed kidney to re-function.In your patients case its pretty clear that the kidneys have been affected secondary to DM and HTN.OUR aim now is to protect the other kidney and take all measures to delay progression of the disease in the now, normal kidney to as long as possible.Strict control of sugars and BP,along with some nephro protective drugs may be prescribed.But still its not guaranteed that the other kidney can be saved.In case the other kidney goes beyond repair ,dialysis and renal transplant are the only solutions.
