Why does a patient need kidney transplant?

If a person is diagnosed with kidney failure before the need of dialysis arises, medical intervention can sometimes prevent (or certainly delay) chronic failure of the kidneys. But when the kidneys finally stop functioning, treatment to replace the work that they do - either a transplant or dialysis becomes the need of the hour.

While dialysis helps get rid of waste products from the human body, it cannot replace all the functions of a healthy pair of kidney. In that case Kidney transplant becomes a critical requirement:

  • continuous removal of waste generated due to metabolism
  • continuous removal of excess fluid from the body
  • production of a natural hormone called erythropoietin, to prevent anaemia.
  • conversion of vitamin D in food into active compound, which helps in keeping the bones healthy.
  • excretion of drugs
  • helping to control the blood pressure levels
