Most folks are born with two kidneys, but did you know some people have three ๐Ÿ’œ ๐Ÿ’œ ๐Ÿ’œ ? When youโ€™re born with more than two, those extras are called supernumerary kidneys and itโ€™s extremely rare, with fewer than 100 known cases. Having three kidneys is more common following a transplant โ€” they hook up the new one and leave the old one in!
