Kidney Transplant


There are many options when it comes to the treatment of a kidney that fails to maintain normal function in the body. Kidney transplant surgery is one of the most successful ways to restore normal functioning of the affected kidneys as it allows for an access to greater freedom and a better quality of life.

A kidney transplant patient is more likely to enjoy bouts of energy and follow the less strict diet as compared to patients who choose an alternative treatment.

The kidney performs several important functions in the human body. Even slight damage to the kidneys can, therefore, cause a lot of problems. When the kidney is rendered incapable of its main function, that is, removal of waste products from the blood, a condition called uremia develops.

Unfortunately, the symptoms of this condition do not develop unless 90 percent of the kidney is damaged. This is the time when an individual would require a kidney transplantation surgery or dialysis to restore the normal functioning.

There are several other kidney diseases that warrant the need for a kidney transplantation. Some of these conditions include the following:

    • Deep-rooted problem in the anatomy of the urinary tract
    • Extremely high blood pressure
    • Glomerulonephritis
    • Polycystic kidney disease
    • Diabetes mellitus


Symptoms of Kidney Dysfunction

Some of the common symptoms observed in the case of kidney diseases include the following:

  • Shortness of breath and general fatigue
  • Retention of fluid causing swelling (edema)
  • Foamy and dark orange,  brown, red or tea-colored urine
  • Increased frequency of urination
  • Back pain
  • Restless legs and inability to sleep due to leg cramps
  • Metallic taste
  • Breathing problems due to urea build up in blood
  • Loss of appetite
  • Numbness in the toes or fingertips and tingling sensation
  • Problem concentrating
Liver transplant

A liver transplant surgery is conducted to remove the diseased liver and replace it with a healthy liver donated by either a living or a deceased donor. There are a huge number of people who are listed on the waiting list for a liver transplant because the availability of donated liver is limited. This is the reason why a liver transplant is an expensive procedure and is conducted only in rare cases.

Qualifications for Liver Transplant Recipient

A healthy liver plays an important role in the human body. It plays a key role in the absorption and storage of key nutrients and medications and also helps eliminate bacteria and toxins from the blood.

However, a healthy liver may get diseased over a period of time due to many reasons. Patients with the following liver-related conditions are considered for the liver transplant procedure:

    • Acute liver failure triggered by drug-induced liver injury among other reasons

    • Hepatic tumour or cancer
    • Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD)
    • Alcoholic liver disease
    • Chronic viral hepatitis
    • Diseases causing liver failure
      Some of the leading reasons that contribute to liver cirrhosis include the following:
    • Diseased bile ducts that carry the bile juice from the liver and small intestine to the gall bladder
    • Hemochromatosis, which is a genetic problem where the liver tends to build up iron undesirably
    • Wilson’s disease wherein the liver accumulates copper by itself
    • Biliary atresia in children, a condition wherein an infant is born without the bile ducts or has the ducts blocked or damaged
    • Liver cancers such as cholangiocarcinoma, hepatoblastoma, or hepatocellular carcinoma
