FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT KIDNEY TRANSPLANTATION

1. What is a kidney transplant?
A kidney transplant is an operation in which a person whose own kidneys have failed, receives a new kidney to take over the work of cleaning the blood.

2. Are there different kinds of kidney transplants?
Yes. There are two types of kidney transplants: those that come from living donors and those that come from unrelated donors who have died (non-living donors). A living donor may be someone in your immediate or extended family who wished to donate a kidney.

3. How do I start the process of getting a kidney transplant? Your doctor (Nephrologist) will discuss the transplant process with you and refer you to the UPHDMC-Kidney Transplant Unit for further evaluation.

4. What is kidney rejection?
The most critical complication that might occur after transplant is rejection of the kidney. The body’s immune system guards against attack by all foreign matter, such as bacteria. The defense system may recognize tissue transplanted from someone else as foreign and act to combat this “foreign invader.” You will need to take medications everyday to prevent rejection of your newly transplanted kidney. Additional treatment may be needed if a rejection episode occurs. Regular check-ups at the UPHDMC-Kidney Transplant Unit will ensure early detection and treatment of rejection.

5. What are the side effects of the anti-rejection medications?
Anti-rejection medications have a large side effects because the body’s immune defenses are suppressed. If side effects do occur, changing the dosage or type of medication will usually take care of them.
Some of the most common types of side effects include high blood pressure, weight gain and susceptibility to infections and tumors. You may also require additional medications to maintain blood pressure, prevent ulcers and infections.

6. What are the chances that a transplanted kidney will continue to fucntion normally?
Results of transplantation are improving steadily with research advancement. In the event that a transplanted kidney fails, a second transplant may be a good option for many patients.

7. Will I need to follow a special diet?
Kidney transplants like other treatments for kidney failure, often require special diet guidelines. If you were on dialysis before, you may find this new diet less restricted. The length of time you must follow your special diet varies. Your progress will be followed closely, and your doctor and dietitian will change your diet as needed.
