Suffering from 40% kidney damage. Is it curable damage ?

Hi , My wife age 22 has consulted a Neprologist and undergone Biopsy. Report says 40% of kidney damage. Her BP often gets above normal range and she encounters serious back pain . This is the first week of prescription and she is having Shelcal and Waysolone 20 mg thrice a day. Her creatine level is fluctuting between 2.1 to 2.4. Doc says lets wait and watch and can not conclude weather it s a permanant damage or curable. Also, she had to terminate her pregnancy a few weeks ago for the above reason.

I have been a diabetic for just over 50 years. I have had signs of early kidney damage. Currently, I have had symptoms such as a heat-like, heavyish sensation in the middle of my chest along with difficulty breathing. I also have more of a lack of energy than normal and find it difficult to go up stairs without my heart rate increasing. I have begun checking my BP and over the past 3-4 days, the highest it has been was 143/ forty-something (don t have my list by the comupter). However most of the time the top reading has been under 115 and the lower in the 40-60 range. Could these symptoms be heart-related? My next appointment is not until spring.
