Actually the kidneys act as a filter in our body. They clean up our body from the toxic substances by removing the waste materials and fluids from the blood by producing urine. So it is clear that if they cannot do their duty properly, our blood would be surrounded by toxic substances. So after short time we will pass away. So we cannot ignore the important role of kidneys in our life and our health and we need at least one kidney for surviving.

  • A living kidney donor: All people such as your family members including sister, brother, mother, father, aunt can donate their kidney if they are compatible with your blood tests and are in excellent health. The living donor is the best choice for kidney transplant because the patient does not loses much time for waiting list to receive the kidney and they may experience few side effects and complications after the surgery and it has better long-term results.
  • Deceased donor: You may hear about people who are in brain death condition due to many reasons and make a decision to donate all or some part of their body.
