In brief: No

Hyperbaric oxygen is used in a few llimited scenarios.
..But chronic or acute kidney disease are not one of those scenarios. That being said, I am sure there are some people out there doing it.

In brief: Hyperbaric oxygen

There are no controlled studies that hyperbaric oxygen helps with kidney disease.
It is not even among those diagnoses approved by medicare for payment; thus, the patient and or their family will incur considerable costs for these treatments that have not been proven to help. More research needs to be completed before this can be recommended.

In brief: I have never used

HBOT to treat renal diseases in my practice and don't know any where it is being used for the treatment of renal diseases.
