People with one kidney have no more chance of kidney failure or disease than a person with two kidneys. The only con that I, myself, know of is since you have one kidney, if it fails, you'll have to have a transplant.

One more thing..
In normal case, do both kidneys work,actually ? Some one said to me that ,it is one of the two kidneys tht does the entire job . the other one is just an additional one.
Is it true ?

I have an 18 year old son with a single kidney. The only effects he has noticed are being turned down by the military, as he wanted to join the Coast Guard. I suppose that is understandable with the costs of transplants, if needed.

Since that is on the high side of normal I would say just watch your diet and keep drinking water. Don't eat high salt foods and pre-packaged foods (as they contain high levels of phosphorus which is hard on kidneys) and keep your weight within normal range. A person can live on one kidney but with your numbers it is good to be on top of things.

My son was born w a singular kidney. Minimize your soda intake, drink 8-10 glasses of water a day religiously, and stay away from contact sports as much as you can. My son still plays football, but is aware of the risk and uses additional equipment to protect his kidney. Other than that - it's life as you knew it!

Here's some good info:
