  • It is a very low risk procedure.

  • All donor medical expenses are covered.

  • Expenses such as salary loss and transplant-related trips are reimbursed.

  • 65% of potential donors match unrelated recipients.

  • If in the future the donor for some other reason would require an organ transplant, his name would rise to the top of the waiting list.

  • Insurance companies do not consider kidney donation as a negative factor when insuring.

  • Being a donor does not affect the ability to have children.

  • You have the opportunity to literally save a person's life.

What requirements must a living kidney donor meet?

From a medical point of view, the potential donor should not have complex or serious diseases, in order to minimize the medical, anesthetic and surgical risks associated with the donation.

Specifically, the potential kidney donor cannot have:

  • Hypertension.

  • Diseases of the kidneys or impaired renal function.

  • Heart, lung or metabolic diseases.

  • Infectious or potentially communicable diseases, including previous cancers.

  • Psychiatric illness that alters the ability to consent.

  • Obesity.

  • Systemic diseases such as diabetes.

  • Habits of tobacco and alcohol consumption, if you have a history of tobacco and / or alcohol consumption it is very important that you inform doctors about this fact, you will be advised to stop smoking and consume alcohol before donation and if possible keep it later with the aim of promoting healthy lifestyle habits.

Also, the potential donor should not have 18 to 60 years old and preferably, the potential donor should live in the United States, since all medical tests should be done at the transplant center.
