30% kidney function

My daughter is 5 and was told by a urologist earlier this month that she has 30% kidney function on the right side with some pretty bad scarring. The doctor didn't seem to be concerned at all but after some research I found out that 59%-30% is moderate kidney insufficiency so my question is about how long will it be until she'll need dyalasis (sp?) or a transplant? Last December we were told that her kidneys were next to perfect.

Hi,
How are you? Can you elaborate on the scarring present? As mentioned from the other post, the length of time prior to kidney failure  ( GFR result below 15 mL/min/1.73 m2 ) depends on a variety of factors including the diagnosis, symptoms present, results of other diagnostic tests and overall health. Seeking another specialist's opinion may also help,  Do keep us posted and best regards.
