Nephrologist 's  Response
hi anjaly,
your brother is probably suffering from chronic interstitial nephritis. mostly this condition is not reversible if the kidney size is smaller than normal. further damage can be prevented by giving importance to BP control. Low salt diet. avoiding over the counter pain killer medicines. proper diagnosis for the primery cause and regular follow-up with nephrologist.

i wish you all the best for the treatment of your brother
