Kidney Transplantations and Challenges

When kidneys fail, treatment is needed to replace the work of kidneys can no longer do. When you get a kidney transplant, a healthy kidney is placed inside body to do the work of kidneys can no longer do. There are fewer limits on what you can eat and drink, but you should follow a heart-healthy diet. Your health and energy should improve.  In fact, a successful kidney transplant may allow you to live the kind of life you were living before you got kidney disease. Studies show that people with kidney transplants live longer than those who remain on dialysis. Bio Artificial Transferable Kidneys are the new artificial kidney discovered which made revolution in kidney transplantation. Successful kidney transplantation offers the best possible quality of life for patients with end stage renal disease. Despite this, the successful renal transplantation rates in the developing world are considerably lower than in the developed world. When identified reasons for this include lack of awareness, low education levels, lack of a clear national policy, absence of functional dialysis and transplant units with adequately trained staff, and absence of an organized system of organ retrieval from deceased donors and lack of opportunities to fund long-term immunosuppression. Some of Challenges include Acute Rejection, Graft Loss, Graft Survival.
