Q.

Only one kidney

My 1 year old baby boy had a kidney removed and now I would like to know how to adjust his dieet to compensate for only having one kidney.

Paediatrician

It is very common to only have one kidney and your baby should be treated normally. It would be a good idea to limit salt in his diet.
