Welcome to Healthcare Magic
There is long time damage to the kidneys which means there is no cure. Medical management is needed for now to control her Serum Urea and Creatinine and prevent complications. She should avoid salt in diet. Blood pressure and blood sugar to be maintained in normal range. There is problem with the urinary bladder, it is more thick inside. Need to get a sample of the tissue from bladder to diagnose why bladder is thick and then give treatment.

Welcome to Health Care Magic.
Thanks for your query.
Both the kidneys are contracted and there is no treatment for this condition.
She require medical management of high blood urea and high serum creatinine.salt intake should be restricted as per the advice of a clinical nutritionist.Blood pressure and blood glucose level should be maintained to normal level.Better to avoid non-veg and high protein diet.The patient should not take "Masoor Daal" as it has more nitogenous products etc in it.
Keep in touch with the Nephrologist for the better management.
Thank you
