My granddaughter is 4 years and 8 months old. She had a urine infection 3 weeks ago and the test came back and said she has a serious kidney disease! I almost died when I heard that. She is the most lovable little girl I ever know and she is our only grandchild. I just want to know what will happen to her?

I am unable to provide a specific diagnosis for the kidney disease that you describe.  I suggest consultation with a pediatrician or a pediatric nephrologist.  I am an adult nephrologist and do not see children.
