Kidney Transplantation Guidelines

Kidney Transplantation GuidelinesKidney transplant is one treatment option for Kidney Failure patients, and it can give these patients a great chance to gain a brand new life. However, some kidney transplantation guidelines should be known before this surgery.

1. Which type of kidney disease is suitable to kidney transplant

In clinic, many types of kidney disease can lead to kidney failure such as glomerulonephritis, chronic nephropyelitis, Polycystic Kidney Disease, diabetic nephropathy, etc. If kidneys fail to work completely because of these diseases, they can consider kidney transplant.

2. Patients' age

Patients can accept kidney transplant between 5 to 60 years old, but generally, it is better to do this surgery at age 12-50. In recent years, the age range has been extended.

3. Some contraindications to do kidney transplantation

If patients have active hepatitis, coronary heart disease, unstable angina, active peptic ulcer disease, chronic infections, malignant tumor, and so on, kidney failure patients should stay away from kidney transplantation.

4. Notices of taking medications

If transplanted kidney still has function, patients should take immunosuppressants for the rest of the life. The type and dosage of these medications should be determined according to patients' guidance. Don't increase or reduce the dosage by yourself.

5. Dietary notices

Because kidney transplant patients have followed long-term low-protein diet and dialysis before this surgery, they must have different degrees of malnutrition. Additionally, the use of immunosuppressants can also affect the body's metabolism, resulting in hypoalbuminemia, hyperlipidemia, diabetes, high blood pressure and electrolyte disorder easily. Therefore, scientific diet plan is very important for kidney transplant patients, and the basic dietary guidelines are supplementing high-quality protein, low fat, low cholesterol, low sugar, low sodium and correct amount of minerals and vitamins.

The above are only several notices for patients after kidney transplantation. To learn more about its guidelines, you can leave a message below or consult the online service directly.
