Kidney Transplant Advantages and Disadvantages

Kidney Transplant Advantages and DisadvantagesIf one person is suffering from end stage kidney disease, he or she may be faced by two common options: dialysis and kidney transplantation. Compared with dialysis, kidney transplant has its own outstanding advantages, but it also has some disadvantages.

Advantages of Kidney Transplant

If kidney failure patients get kidney transplant successfully, they can lead a fairly normal life just like general population. Once they ever undergo dialysis, they will find their diet and lifestyle become less restricted after kidney transplant. Besides, patients at child-bearing age can become more fertility. I believe living a brand new life is the biggest hope for all patients at end stage kidney failure.

Disadvantages of Kidney Transplant

The advantages the above mentioned are based on the success of renal transplantation. However, at the same time, patients may also be faced by some risks and kidney transplant disadvantages. For example:

- High cost: If the surgery fails or transplanted kidney doesn’t work well, the result will be the loss of both kidney and money.

- The cost of medications and regular tests: Although a successful kidney transplant can make patients live just like normal people, patients still need to take daily medications and do regular blood tests.

- Various complications: In addition to rejection reactions, patients may also suffer from some other complications such as bleeding tendency, heart problem, low blood pressure, and so on.

- The limitation of kidney source: There are a huge amount of kidney failure patients who are waiting for kidney donor every year, so not all patients can have chance to accept this surgery.

From the above content, we have got a general overview of kidney transplant. In fact, some alternative therapies have been created to replace kidney transplant and dialysis. Hopefully, they can be helpful for more and more kidney patients.
