Will it be possible to cure chronic kidney disease when the report says 40% 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.

Hi welcome to healthcare Magic

There is no complete or permanent cure for CKD(chronic Kidney Disease).. you must ask her to continue the medications... only around 70 to 80% of kidney function can be restored... Once her creatinine level comes to normal, BP is in normal range she can plan for pregnancy...

Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
There are no specific drugs that can actually cure a chronic kidney disease. Prevention is the only treatment.The creatinine level will tell if she needs a dialysis or not. Getting the pregnancy terminated is not a solution. She will have to take that much of risk to have a baby.
