They could keep you alive artificially but you would be on dialisis constantly. If you were to not stay on your dialisis, then you would die.

You can live with only 1, but you cannot live without kidneys.A normal human can function with a single kidney. But to live without one requires dialysis on a regular basis.


You can live with just one Kidney.


There are usually 2 kidneys, but a person can live a normal life with just one. However without dialysis treatment a person can not survive without any kidneys.


It helps cleaning our blood, because without the kidneys a person could not live. If a person's kidneys are not functioning, they can be exposed to a dialysis machine which help keep the kidneys cleaning the blood. The kidneys also produce urea, a major part of urine.


A person cannot live more than a week without dialysis if kidneys have failed.


Your kidneys filter toxic substances out of your blood. If you didn't have kidneys, these would build up and basically poison you.


You can survive without both of your kidneys, but life wouldn't be very enjoyable. You would need to undergo dialysis of the blood every other day to filter unwanted pollutants from the blood. You can, however, happily survive a free independent life with only one kidney.


The body cannot live without something that does the function of the kidneys. So a person in end stage renal failure, would need dialysis or a kidney transplant.


Yes, but it would require dialysis on a regular basis. The toxins screened out of your body by the kidneys would have no place to go.


A person can live with only one functioning kidney if the other is diseased or has been removed. But no one can live without both kidneys, unless he undergoes almost daily treatments on a special machine called a dialysis machine. This machine is attached to the body, and cleans the blood and removes the wastes, two of the jobs that the kidneys usually do.


People without functioning kidneys need dialysis to live. The kidneys filter the blood and then selected solutes are reabsorbed which controls blood volume. The compounds that are not reabsorbed (excreted) are usually the products of metabolism or compounds from food that have been detoxified in the liver.


No, they could not live without ice.


Kidneys, although there are two, are vital organs. One being could not live without at least one. The layer of fat surrounding them acts as a protection barrier, if you will. The fat helps prevent trauma from occurring to the organs.


If you have two kidneys, it is unlikely that you will because you can live with only one. So even if one kidney was abnormal or had to be removed, if the other kidney was functional, you could live a normal life. You could also live with no kidneys if you are on dialysis.

If 1 fails, you'll have the other kidney to keep filtering your blood.No ,A healthy person can donate their kidney and live without medication. Donate it for altruistic reasons and not to earn cash.


Only for a tiny bit of time but not really because your kidney is what filters your urine and your blood. Without a kidney you could urinate blood and brown urine.


A person without kidneys that is not on dialysis may only live from a few days to several weeks before dying.


Yes we could indeed live without a light bulb!


yes you can live without your kidney's but you need to do a treatment called dialisis that works a artificial kidney and you need to do this every other day. LUKEY DUKEY


Without their liver, no, not without some sort of medical technology, and perhaps not even then. Without one kidney, yes, quite easily in most cases. Without both kidneys, no, again not without some sort of medical technology (usually a kidney dialysis machine).


If you tell me who they are, I could answer this much more accurately. But yes, I can probably live without them, whoever they are.


They are as important as other organs as you can't live without them.


no, they cant live without one.
