Hi.
Because of many unethical procedures govt has laid strict guidelines in choosing donor for kidney donation. And each state has different protocols followed. As for as I know unrelated transplant is done in few places in Kerala and Tamil nadu. But it as to be unequivocally proved that kidney donation is only by altruistic purpose.
Cost of procedure varies from hospital to hospital. Approximately it will cost you anywhere between 3lac to 10 lac. For documents, once you chose the hospital , they will guide you further.

My mom is suffering from acute renal failure. Her BP was very low and so the docs gave her fluids to raise it. Only problem is I believe they are overloading mom s body with fluids. This i believe cause renal failure as easy as not enough fluid. Intake and expelling fluids should be roughly even but they aren t measuring it. They ve also stopped mom s diuretics which surely is putting a strain on her heart. I ve argued with the docs and nurses but what do I know. Her legs and arms are now swelling up and she is non responsive with a sleep like state or extreme fatigue. She doesn t recognise anyone and this as happened within 4 days hospital treatment.

Hello doctor, my 53 year old dad had been diabetic since 30 years, now he is in kidney failure. Now kidney specialist has advised for kidney transplant. What are the treatment options for patient with kidney failure other than kidney transplant and kidney transplant is better than other treatment options? Are there different kinds of kidney transplants? What is rejection? What are the chances that a transplanted kidney will continue to function normally? Will I need to follow a special diet?

i have routine blood work done yearly and last month my GFR came back 59, HCT 31, nml w/ cr 1.0. i have markers for sjogrens, not clinical diagnosis, chol 203, hdl 54, ldl 110 triglycerides 88 and BP is 110/70 s ballpark average, microprotein 44 in urine from 4 last sept. i have no other healthproblems. repeat GFR 58, HCT 37 bun/cr same, chol level same but CO2 20, and microprotein is down to 8 in urine (cut protein down to minimum..i was big protein eater). i am worried about GFR. only thing i can think of that could have caused this is taking ibuprofen/benadryl during a 3 week period when i broke my rib prior to having labs drawn..and i took the ibuprofen regularly. i drink lots of water always. also since feb, i have increased exercise phenomenally. is it possible to turn this GFR around? and how quick does kidney failure take? am i on a downward spiral? i have next appt w/ Primary doc in 1 month, am repeating labs til then. what can i do that i am not doing to retard/repair circumstances? is it permanent damage?..
