The main role of two beans shaped kidneys is to filter waste products from the blood before converting them to urine. When kidneys lose their filtering ability, dangerous levels of fluid and waste accumulate in your body — a condition known as kidney failure or end-stage renal disease (ESRD). Various conditions can damage your kidneys, including both primary kidney diseases and other conditions that affect the kidneys.
Kidney Transplant or Renal Transplant is a procedure in which a person with completely failed kidneys will receive a kidney from a healthy person who has both the kidneys working in good condition. Thus, after the surgery both the man can continue to lead a healthy and normal life.
Reasons for Kidney Transplant
Kidney failure is most often a result of uncontrolled High Blood Pressure or High Diabetes. The need for a Renal Transplant arises when a person’s kidneys have lost all their functions and the Kidneys function is being managed artificially by the help of Dialyzing Machines. Kidney transplant remains the only cure for chronic kidney disease (CKD) or end-stage renal disease (ESRD).
