Nephrologist 's  Response
A person with a single kidney should lead a healthy and normal lifestyle. He should avoid getting overweight, avoid indiscriminate use of pain killers (NSAIDs) and avoid alternative medications as far as possible.
No diet restrictions are required, but as I said, a good healthy diet should be stuck to.
No exercises are specific to this condition. He doesn't need to avoid any exercise either. He should be active and once activity levels go down ( after starting job etc), a regular exercise program should be adhered to.
Do check blood pressure, creatinine and urine (routine) once a year.
