Their main function of kidney is to act like a filter and remove the excess fluid and waste from the blood. When they lose this ability, it leads to a build-up of fluids and waste in the body, which can be fatal. This condition is commonly known as kidney failure and requires a kidney transplant.
Only one donated kidney is enough to replace two failed kidneys. Till the person finds a suitable donor, the patient is kept on dialysis.
There are mainly two types of donation that a person can opt for; the first choice for most patients is to get a living donor kidney. In this case, it is usually one of the patient’s family members who donates a kidney. If a patient does not have a donor within the family, then they can opt for a cadaver donation .This means that the patient can receive a kidney from a person who is declared brain dead. For this kind of donation the person has to be on a transplant list. You should speak to your doctor, who will guide you about the procedures. Once a kidney is available a few tests are done to match the donor and recipient blood and tissue type, after which a transplant can be done. These tests are done to ascertain if the recipient’s body will accept the new kidney.
