Nephrologist Dr. Aditya Bhabhe's  Response
Thanks for the query.
The Ultrasound result suggests kidney disease.
You need to do blood tests like urea, creatinine and a urine analysis.
These will tell us the extent of kidney damage.

You also should see a nephrologist who can examine you and ascertain the cause of kidney disease by doing further tests and prescribe appropriate treatment.

Hope this helps
Good luck.
