Expert Answer

1. Is there an age limit?

A living donor is usually between ages 18-65 and in excellent health.

2. Is there a weight restriction?

Each patient is evaluated on a case-by-case basis, but generally we require a body mass index of 35 or less.

3. Which person is not suitable for a donor?

People with history of heart disease, chronic lung or liver disease, kidney disease, hypertension, diabetes, cancer or untreated psychiatric disease are not suitable for donors. Smoking, obesity and other health issues are also considered on an individual basis.

4. What risks are there for a kidney donor?

The donor’s lifespan or lifestyle can be low. Besides, 2-4% donors may have a risk of minor wound infection.

5. Is kidney transplant the right answer for everyone?

A transplant involves an operation and needs you to take medications to prevent your body from rejecting the new kidney. For some people-such as those with serious heart disease-the operation and/or the side effects of the medications are too dangerous. Kidney transplant is too hazardous for patients with active infections and cancer.

6. Will I take medicines always after kidney transplant?

After your transplant, you need to take medicines always to stop the body from rejecting the new kidney. These drugs are called immunosuppressants. Because your body can reject the kidney at any time, the medications must be taken every day for as long as your kidney works.
