Kidney Transplants


  • Person can lead a normal life with a healthy functioning Kidney
  • Don't have to spend hours doing dialysis
  • A cheap procedure
  • No longer have to monitor their glucose, ion and water levels as closely.


  • Patient has to undergo surgery
  • A long waiting list
  • Kidney can get attacked by antigens and antibodies from your immune system
  • Patient has to take immunosuppressive drugs for the rest of their life
  • Immunosuppressive drugs weaken the immune system making the person more vulnerable to infections


Kidney transplants come with a lot of health risks however a healthy kidney can complete transport a persons lifestyle so I think a Kidney transplant is the ideal treatment.
