Kidney Transplant

Indus Info Center : +91-1762-512666

A kidney transplant is now one of the most common organ transplant surgeries. In this surgery, kidneys that aren't working well are replaced by a healthy kidney from a deceased or living donor. It is a lifesaving choice for thousands of patients with end-stage kidney disease. Kidney transplants are required for people who have kidney failure - when the kidneys have lost 90% of their ability to function. The kidneys are two bean-shaped organs located on each side of the spine just below the rib cage. Each is about the size of a fist. Their main function is to filter and remove waste, minerals, and fluid from the blood by producing urine. Ensure you receive quality treatment from the best kidney transplant hospitals in India, Indus Hospitals.

Symptoms of Kidney Failure (ESRD)

Kidney failure, also known as end-stage renal disease (ESRD), is the last stage of chronic kidney disease. There are many signs of kidney failure, such as:

o swelling of the hands, feet, and face (edema) o headaches (due to high blood pressure) o seizures o pale skin color (due to low iron) o coffee-colored urine o chronic bad breath o depression o fatigue o too much urine or not enough urine o itchy skin

Having one or more of any of the above symptoms might be a sign of serious kidney issues. If you notice any of these symptoms, you should contact your doctor right away.

Causes of Kidney Failure

When the kidneys stop working, renal failure occurs. If this renal failure continues (chronically), it results in end-stage renal disease with the accumulation of toxic waste products in the body. Then, either dialysis or transplantation is required. If a person who has kidney failure cannot have a transplant, then dialysis can sustain life. Dialysis is a process that filters waste from the blood mechanically, and performs the job that the kidneys are unable to. The major causes of kidney failure include

  • Diabetes mellitus
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • Polycystic kidney disease – a genetic disorder
  • Glomerulonephritis
  • Serious issues with the urinary tract

Benefits of kidney transplant

If the kidney transplant is successful, you may live a longer life than you would have while on dialysis. You may also have fewer health complications and enjoy a better quality of life.

Benefits can include:

  • No need for dialysis
  • Feeling more energetic
  • Achieving better overall health
  • Having fewer restrictions on what you drink and eat
  • Have a more normal lifestyle – for example, you will be able to travel.
