I did a cat scan, nuclear test and a blood test. My doctor told me that one of my kidney is not functioning and the other is functioning halfway. Can you please advise me?

Many people live a normal life with one functioning kidney.  I suggest that you ask your physician to clarify this issue and discuss the reasons behind one kidney being abnormal and the other functioning to a greater degree.  I cannot provide a specific diagnosis for your kidney disease.  I suggest further consultation with your physician.
