Your kidneys seem to be significantly damaged from your description. Your doctor must have told you already that only some kidney function is left. There are few things you can get corrected and prolong your kidney function. Check your serum bicarbonate in a NABH accredited lab [most labs dont do this test properly]. The bicarbonate has to be between 22 and 24 meq/l. Get serum vitamin D and serum PTH, serum calcium and serum phosphorus done appropriately treated. If your kidney function is rapidly worsening then get a AV-fistula done. If you need more clarification please contact.
All the best. Hope it helps.
