35% of normal functi: First is it an acute change or a chronic change. If acute it may be reversible. What does the urine look like? If there is blood and protein in the urine it might be a glomerulonephritis and many of these are treatable. If untreated they can progress to end stage renal failure. You are young so blockage of the urinary tract is unlikely but an ultrasound is needed. See you doc about the labs.
