Unfortunately this represents extremely low kidney function. I don't have enough information to guide treatment - such as a urinalysis, renal biopsy, ANCA levels, complements or an abdominal ultrasound. The results of these tests would be important in order to give any meaningful recommendations at this point, I'm afraid.
