Hi I have horseshoe kidney cani donate one ?

Hi I have horseshoe kidney cani donate one ?

No: Horseshoe kidney means you have only one kidney due to the fusion of normally two separate kidneys, so you cannot donate one. Well you could, but it would entail more risk as the horseshoe kidney would need to be divided to remove one half.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

I have one kidney, one 5 cm fibroid, bicornuate uterus and yet miraculously pregnant after 6 yrs.Can I have tamarind? Food planning please.

Sweet, sour fruit: The tamarind is best described as sweet and sour in taste, and is high in tartaric acid, sugar, B vitamins and, oddly for a fruit, calcium. Eat it in moderation. Congratulations on your pregnancy. Going forward remember to drink water generously, sleep on a regular schedule and eat foods grown locally and in season. Consider a "sattvic" diet of fruits and vegetables, nuts, oils and cooking herbs. ...Read more

No - you will be ok: Keppra (levetiracetam) does not affect the kidneys much, it is predominantly metabolized in the blood. A horseshoe kidney has a different shape, but it is not especially susceptible to the toxic effects of medications.

Possible UTI: If you are having kidney pain and pain in the pelvic area, it could be bladder pain instead of uterus pain. You need to see a physician to sort this out and get your urine tested to rule out urinary tract infection. If the pain is coming from your uterus then you would need a pelvic exam to determine the cause of that pain. ...Read more
