2013-12-09 11:15


How Long Is The Waiting List for A Kidney Transplant?When your kidney disease develops to the end stage, dialysis and kidney transplant are often suggested by your doctor to sustain your life. Kidney transplant is more cost effective and allows a return to a more normal lifestyle than maintenance dialysis does. But kidney transplant is not available to everyone. Before kidney transplant, you have to wait for a long time. How long is the waiting list for a kidney transplant?

How long is the waiting list for a kidney transplant?

How long you are waiting for a kidney transplant should depend on many factors.

First, few people are glad to donate their kidneys. Many transplanted kidneys come from donors who have died.

Second, even if there is kidney source, you should consider whether it can match with you.

Third, if it can match with you, whether your current health is suitable for a surgery should be taken into consideration.

How close the organ is to you, whether you can make it to the hospital in time, age etc can also influence the time you have to wait.

Alternative treatment for kidney transplant

Data has showed that currently there are over 100.000 people waiting for a kidney transplant in United States. And the number is increasing ever year. It is difficult to predict how long you will wait for kidney transplant. Besides kidney transplant, dialysis is not the only way to keep you alive. You can try some treatments that can improve your kidney function. Recently, Immunotherapy receives more and more attention. It combines western medicine and Chinese medicine. Through Immunotherapy, wastes and toxins in your body can be cleared effectively. In addition, it can regulate your immune system, repair damaged kidneys and improve kidney function. If your kidney function recovers to over 15 percent, you can get rid of dialysis and kidney transplant.
