Can my husband lead a normal life with one kidney?

Q: My husband lost his left kidney in a Chyluria surgery. His right kidney is perfectly fine. Can you please advise me about the diet he should follow so that his right kidney lasts a lifetime? Also, it would be helpful if you can let me know what precautions need to be taken to keep his kidney healthy.

A:Your husband must have taken Hetrazan for three weeks as treatment for Chyluria in addition to the surgery done on his left kidney. Hetrazan treatment takes care of filaria infection, which causes Chyluria. A person with normal single kidney can live like any other person with two kidneys. He can eat and exercise normally. He should follow healthy food and lifestyle methods of living, which are good for overall health as well as for kidneys.
