Kidney function

My dad has diabetes, has for years and along with that kidney failure.  The doctor had told him that his kidney function was at 37% for the longest time, several years.  Now the doc says that the function has increased to 43%.  My question is, can this be possible (the doc himself said it was a miracle).  I didn't think that the function percentage would go up without some sort of dialysis or something.  And we wonder of it is one of those things that show better before it gets worse.  (Hope not)
Thanks for your time.
