    That's something that your doctor should have gone over with you. Your remaining kidney now has to do double the work. So one thing to avoid is avoid over eating with protein. Unless the remaining kidney is failing, you can still have a good protein intake. However if it's failing then you're going to have to monitor the amount of protein to take in. The same with sodium and fats. With some vegetables you're also going to have to watch some of the vegetables you eat, mainly for oxalates. Oxalates can bind with calcium and that can lead to the development of kidney stones. So leafy green vegetable are going to be better off eaten cooked, as that will break them down or neutralize them.

    One high in garlic and gingko biloba to help the memory so you don't keep losing things.

    Ask your doctor but AFAIK as long as the remaining kidney is fine you can pretty much go on as normal.

    Depends why you lost it. Your doctor should have given you dietary advice if you have ongoing kidney disease.   Sweet potatoes would be beneficial anyway.

    Did you try looking for it?  When I lose things I usually find them in the couch cushions.
