Ask your doctor. No matter what other input you get, ask your doctor. Having one kidney is not the big deal, we allow kidney donors to remain in the military after donation, one works just fine. The problem is whatever led to the removal in the first place. If it was trauma, there might be other things that had to be done to repair the damage that you will need to be aware of during training. If it was due to disease, that may require adjustments in and of itself (eg, diabetes, sugar and fluid monitoring; infection, fluid monitoring; etc). Too many variables, ask your doctor. But I'd say a belt is not needed.
