Different Conditions In People With 1 Kidney?
Good evening, I want to ask some kidney problems
Hello Nanda, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
In general, people who have 2 kidneys and 1 kidney are not physically different. People who live with 1 kidney can still have good health, have the same life expectancy as people with 2 kidneys, and still be able to live a normal life. Anatomically, the kidneys in people who have only 1 kidney will look bigger than people who have 2 kidneys, but this does not have any impact on health, but people who have 1 kidney have a higher risk of suffering from hypertension than people who have 2. kidney. Some things to pay attention to in people who have 1 kidney are that the person should not do physical activities or sports that are risky and dangerous, such as football, martial arts, wrestling, etc., to reduce the risk of injury to their kidneys.
Sugar is normally not found in urine because it is reabsorbed in the proximal tubule of the kidney. However, this reabsorption has maximum capacity. When the blood sugar level exceeds a certain concentration (more than 200 mg / dL), the sugar will be detectable in the urine because the kidneys cannot reabsorb more than its capacity.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
