Kidney transplantation is indicated when two kidneys do not function properly or completely loss the function to work properly. Human kidneys are major filters or blood purifiers. Their main function is filtration – i.e., to remove waste and harmful materials, nitrogenous salts from the blood by producing urine. If kidneys lose their filtering ability, waste materials and harmful levels of fluids accumulate in the body. Kidneys lose this function progressively resulting in end stage renal disease and kidney failure. When both the kidneys lose their 90% ability to function normally, end-stage kidney disease occurs.
Kidney transplantation causes
Polycystic kidney disease, chronic glomerulonephritis (scarring of the glomeruli (the tiny filters inside the kidneys), inflammation, chronic & uncontrolled high blood pressure and diabetes are the common causes of end-stage kidney disease.
Treatment for end-stage kidney disease
There are two options for people with end-stage kidney disease or chronic kidney disease to stay alive: 1. Kidney transplant 2. Dialysis (removal of waste from the bloodstream through a machine). The best treatment of choice for end-stage kidney disease (kidney failure) is kidney transplant.
It is a better – in fact, the best option for those who do not want to be on dialysis for lifetime. It will help you to live longer and feel better. However, all patients are not eligible for kidney transplantation – for some it may be not a good option.
Kidney transplant is associated with a lower risk of complications, fewer dietary restrictions, and better quality of life and low risk of death. Some people may also benefit from receiving a kidney transplant before needing to go on dialysis, a procedure known as preemptive kidney transplant.
Kidney transplantation in highly sensitized patients
People who are not suitable for a kidney transplant include people with cancer or recently undergone cancer treatment; heart patients; individuals with mental illness or dementia; alcohol or drug abusers. In addition, if an individual has undergone any other procedure or takes any medicines that interfere with the prevention of organ rejection.
A kidney transplant can deliver the best quality of life to people with end- stage renal failure (ESRF). The most obvious advantage of transplant to people with kidney failure is freedom from dialysis. If a transplant works well, dialysis becomes a thing of the past. There will be no particular fluid or dietary restrictions after a transplant. Most people who have a transplant feel better and have more energy than they did on dialysis. They are able to cope with a job and many find their lives improve.
