Congenital or: Acquired hydronephrosis is caused by a variety of genetic & other medical conditions for which your daughter is being evaluated by her pediatrician & pediatric urologist, according to your notes. See http://www.Choa.Org/child-health-glossary/h/hy/hydronephrosis for more information.

Azotemia: Your daughter needs to be evaluated by both pediatric urologist & pediatric nephrologist. Repeat my previous advice that you need to take her a center which can provide these services and believe that would by ucla or la children's hospital or uc irvine medical center. They should be able to make a diagnosis and optimally advise regarding treatment. My sympathies this is a serious problem.
