Re: Effects of alcohol with one kidney

You can live with only one kidney no problem but if you are drinking extremely heavily that kidney will wear out eventually. Keep in mind the function of the kidneys is to eliminate waste, eliminate foreign chemicals and regulate body H2O and ions. If you only have 1 kidney doing the job of 2 and you are really taking in alot of foreign chemicals, etc, you are going to wear down your kidney much faster then normal which can lead to many different diseases.
