See Nephrologist!!: You need to find out what your kidney function is. If near 20% of normal you should be evaluated for a transplant. In addition you should receive instruction on hemo and peritoneal dialysis. For utis drink lots of fluid cysts on the liver are common and if only 1 it is ok. The most common cause of death is cardiac. Avoid tobacco, obesity, treat hypertension, treat high cholesterol.
