If one kidney of our excretory system is damaged,so can we live?If yes,how many years we will be alive?

Dear Student,
Please find below the solution to the asked query:

Yes, a person can survive with one kidney, if the other kidney goes damaged. As long as one kidney is healthy, it does not affect a lifespan. But if  both of the kidneys stop to function, then toxic nitrogenous wastes and fluids will build up in the body that may result in toxicity and cause death if not treated well on time.  
Hope this information will clear your doubts about the topic.
