Our kidneys play important roles in our body, so when kidneys shut down, we will suffer from lots of health issues which include elevated blood pressure, fluid retention, electrolyte disturbance, heart problem, back pain, urine problems and so on. You said he has only 15% kidney function left, which means he has lost most of his kidney function, so it is likely for him to suffer from problems we introduced just now.

As of now, there are two options for your husband:

1. Wait for dialysis or kidney transplant

15% kidney function means he is in CKD (Chronic Kidney Disease) stage 4. By controlling symptoms like high blood pressure and swelling, it is not possible for him to stop illness progression. That is to say, he will finally be in ESRD (End Stage Renal Disease) which needs him to take dialysis or kidney transplant to sustain life.

Dialysis is a medical procedure in which blood is cleansed outside the body with a machine and then clean blood is transfused back to body again. Toxins in his blood can be eliminated by dialysis, which supports his life. Dialysis is helpful, but I need to tell his survival rate decreases over time with dialysis.

Kidney transplant is also a way for him and it is really good for him if he can find a matched kidney in limited time, because you know he has a great chance to live a normal life again with kidney transplant. But meanwhile you also need to know he runs certain risk to have second kidney failure, because in some cases, kidney disease comes back after surgery. Additional, he needs to take anti-rejection drugs for the rest of his life.

2. Take alternative treatment to strengthen his own kidneys

By strengthening his own kidneys, he can live rest of his life without dialysis and kidney transplant. He has 15% kidney function left, which means there are three groups of kidney tissues in his body: healthy kidney tissues, injured kidney tissues and dead kidney tissues. We can do nothing about dead kidney tissues, but his injured kidney tissues can be repaired well. In this way, his illness can be reversed to a better condition and also all his symptoms like swelling can be eliminated fundamentally. Alternative treatments he can take include Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Immunotherpay, Blood Pollution Therapy and so on.

For your husband, although his kidneys have been severely damaged and now only 15% kidney function is left, please do not be negative, because there is still chance for him to restore some of his kidney function.
