Kidney problm

My uncle is a diabetic patient from past 19-20 years. And he is having type-2 diabetes. From last one year he is getting weak day by day nd in decemeber he had a biospi of kidney because his legs nd feets used to swell up a lot nd doctor said that it is because of the swelling in kidney. Then we came to knw that this is happening bcoz of diabetes nd since then he is on medication. Nd now his cretanine has reached at 6.50. Nd doctor has declared that he needs a kidney transplant bcoz both the kidneys hav got 90% damage. So there is any other way to recover instead of transplantation of kidneys?

Unfortunately, your doctor is right. He will need dialysis/ transplant.
