Can a failed kidney function be improved?

Q: If someones kidney function declines due to some reason (infection, diabetes etc), can it be improved with the help of medicines? Is there a mathematical correlation between GFR and creatinine?

A:Yes, if kidney function is lost acutely, say due to infection it can recover once the infection is treated. There are many mathematical formulae to calculate GFR from serum creatinine.
