The kidney is one of the most important organs of the human body. Failure of the kidneys can be fatal in most cases, as the body loses its ability to treat out and discharge the waste. Kidney failures themselves are not fatal. However, they can cause enough sickness in the human body that could be a potential life threat. Dialysis can be done in taking care of the discharge and in serious cases, a kidney transplant has to be done. The kidney is either received from a live person or a deceased person. The compatibility would be checked first by the Nephrologist who performs the renal transplant. Kidney donation is the first criteria, and most physicians would prefer it from a family of the patient as their blood conditions could be matching to an extent. The physician will transplant the donated kidney into the body of the affected person as a part of the Kidney Transplant Treatment. Immune-suppressing medications have to be taken for a while as the body will treat the new kidney as a foreign body and can reject it. There are also minuscule chances that the person's body can entirely reject the new kidney, but this happens rarely. Also, a person's body condition plays an important factor in a transplant. If a person is already prone to medical conditions such as liver failure or high blood pressure, the kidney transplant might not yield the desired result.
