In brief: A healthy kidney

Preserving the health of one kidney is the same as preserving the health of two.
You need to eat a healthy diet, limit your salt intake, exercise and control any illness you may have, or develop such as diabetes and/or hypertension. Kidney donors have one kidney and can live long lives. Go to your own doctor or a nephrologist for more advice.
