Gfr dropped from 32 to as low as 16 over a six month period; back now to 32. Kidney biopsy could not determine etiology. No known infections. ?

In brief: Need to know more
In order to answer such a complex question, we would need to know more about your medical history (do you have diabetes, hypertension, have you been tested for lupus or other autoimmune disease, do you take or have you ever taken drugs including Aspirin or ibuprofen.
.. Etc.).

The biopsy was probably abnormal with a GFR of 32, did a pathologist with kidney expertise reviw it or was it your nephrologist? Either way, might be worth another expert reviewing the slides
Dr. William Walsh
I would make sure the bx was reviewed at an academic center by a pathologist who does only kidney issues. If it is negative, you may need another biopsy, which would be unfortunate and painful for you.
