Everyone has two kidneys, but in terms of medicinal one kidney can maintain a healthy life. So how long can a kidney live, does one kidney have the impact on health?
There is a kidney can maintain renal excretion of an inpidual and the secretion function, only need to be especially careful to protect the rest kidney, if the only remaining a renal protection is not good, the damage one won't have another normal kidney, and therefore need routine and renal ultrasound. Regularly check the urinary function to enhance physical fitness, avoiding the use of drugs of kidney damage.
So, remove a kidney, we should pay special attention to the protection of another kidney, as far as possible to avoid damage to the renal drug use, usually have to drink more water, pay attention to personal hygiene, prevention of urinary tract infection.

Dialysis treatment of uremic patients with good physical condition can be performed renal transplantation. However, in some of the disease after kidney transplantation prone to complications should be cautious. The variety of primary or secondary kidney disease such as nephritis, interstitial nephritis, nephritis, hereditary polycystic kidney disease, diabetic nephropathy, hypertensive nephropathy, renal damage caused by drugs, such as lupus nephritis were feasible in renal transplantation.
For liver dysfunction, ulcer disease, pulmonary infection, urinary tract infection, tuberculosis, heart failure, pericardial effusion, etc. must be cured before kidney transplantation.
For patients with hepatitis B and C virus infection need to be treated, liver function is normal after a month of renal transplantation is good. In the short term after interferon therapy, renal transplantation.
