Question
Would you have any reservation in taking the above drug with only one kidney?

Answer
HI Robert,
Yes I would. Not because the drug is likely to cause further kidney damage, but because the drug is not usually required by people. Chromium is a micronutrient, but since it is found in many foods, its deficiency is rare.
