Teenager with Four Kidneys

150_kidneygirl18-year-old Laura Moon recently found out she has four naturally occurring kidneys in her body! The condition is rare but not unheard of. She only found out when she had a medical scan after a car wreck. Laura wants to donate two of the kidneys to those whose lives may be saved with a transplant.
Laura, a customer services adviser from Leeds, said: "I think if I've got four, I don't need all four. Why not donate if there's someone else in need?

"I hope I can help somebody else while I am young. I will do everything in my power to become a donor."

Doctors say Laura should be able to donate two kidneys and remain healthy. Link -via Arbroath

I also have 4 kidneys and i can donate any of them because they are all working as one. It is really depressing because know people that i could donate to and 2 kidneys go along way.

I was born with three kidneys too. I have never had any prolems with the kidneys themselves, just a problem with how they were hooked up when I was a kid. But I am not 35 and haven't had any problems since I had my surgery at 2.

i also have 4 kidneys,
have done since birth.
doctors had no clue what was wrong with me except that i screamed a lot.
after a lot of test they finally figured it out.
mine are the same as lauras.
all four are fully functional and independant.
i wouldnt mind donating them,
if the chance arose.
i think it would be pretty amazing to know youve helped someone like that.

My daughter has 2 on her left side and none on her right. Found out when one ruptured. I find it strangely comforting that so many people share similar oddities.
