Study: Children with 1 Kidney Can Play Sports
from Counsel & Heal
Children born with one kidney are often advised by doctors not to play sports, since there is fear that if they sustain an injury to the organ, they might need lifelong dialysis. However, those beliefs can be left behind, since the result of the analysis of a large database of sports-related injuries among varsity-level high school athletes showed that only 18 cases involved kidney injury.
