How did you hear about KidneyConnect.ca?
Kidney Foundation of Canada Website
Hi everyone, I was diagnosed with kidney disease about 15 years ago. Currently at stage 3/4, not on dialysis.I recently found out I have a solitary kidney ( kidney dysplasia). So I have two kidneys but one is a small pelvic kidney that appears not to be functioning. From what I have read I was most likely born that way. People that have a solitary kidney can get high blood pressure, then protein in their urine and then declining kidney function in the the other kidney later in life. This is what has happened to me. Currently it appears I have 26-30 % kidney function in the other kidney.I would love to hear from other people that have a solitary kidney and what their experiences have been.
