Hi doctor. I have one kidney. I had remove my kidney on 2016 due to the right radical cystic adenocarcinoma. But both my kidney function well. Just i had to remove due to the cancer root attached to my kidney. So. I want to ask. Recently i do loss hair quiet frequently and i can see my scalp clearly. So if i take biotin 600mcg, is it ok for my kidney to process or is it too much? And does this kidney scenario effect my pregnancy if i want to conceive very soon?

Thank you for your question.

Based on your explanation, we understand that you’d like to know if you can take biotin supplements as you have undergone surgery to remove one of the kidneys due to right radical cystic adenocarcinoma. We will try to help you out.

For your information, those with reduced kidney function should take caution when taking supplements like biotin because it can take a longer time to flush it out of your body compared to those with 2 functioning kidneys. Regarding pregnancy, having 1 kidney can increase your risk of developing some problems in pregnancy such as hypertension and kidney failure. But these complication risks can be minimized under the careful supervision of your obstetrician. We encourage you to speak to a doctor regarding your issues for more personalized advice. You can speak to our doctor online so that we can help you further.

We hope that this answer has been helpful.
Thank you.
