kidney transplant explained
Chronic Kidney Disease, or CKD, happens when your kidneys are no longer fully able to clean waste products and fluid from the blood. CKD can be caused by several things, including high blood pressure, diabetes, injury and genetic problems. As CKD worsens, it can result in kidney failure where dialysis or a kidney transplant is required to survive. Learn how following a management plan can help slow the progression of CKD.
What do the kidneys do?
You have two bean-shaped kidneys in the lower back on either side of the spine. They help the body remove the waste material and extra fluid from the blood and body in the form of urine. The kidneys also help to control blood pressure, stimulate the production of red blood cells and regulate fluids and chemicals in the body.
What is kidney failure?
Kidney failure, also known as chronic kidney disease (CKD), is when your kidneys can no longer clean toxins and other chemicals from your blood, regulate blood pressure or produce red blood cells.
Why a kidney transplant rather than dialysis?
A kidney transplant is another treatment option. Transplants (Kidney donations) can provide a better quality of life by allowing you freedom from frequent, time-consuming dialysis treatments. A transplant also can increase your life expectancy when compared with dialysis.
Who is a Candidate for Kidney Transplant?
Anyone with end-stage renal disease is considered a candidate for a kidney transplant. However, certain other criteria, too, have to be met. Like, no active infections; cancer; or severe circulatory problems involving the heart, brain, or major blood vessels. You must also be willing to take medication for the rest of your life to prevent your body from rejecting the new kidney.
