Welcome to healthcare Magic!
Single kidney is also good enough to support life function as is the condition when you have donated one kidney or have only one functional kidney congenitally.
One should avoid NSAIDgroup of painkillers, nephrotoxic drugs like colistin, aminoglycoside and sulphnamide antibiotics, avoid contrast imaging studies, avoid heat stroke and dehydration.
One should take medical help proactive if sick, because seriousness of disease of any system affects kidney function through intricate systemic interaction.
I hope the advise would be informative and useful for you.
Take Care!
