Kidney Transplant Program

Living Donor Requirements

Living donors should be in good overall physical and mental health and older than 18 years of age.

Some medical conditions could prevent you from being a living donor. Medical conditions that may prevent a living kidney donation may include uncontrolled high blood pressure, diabetes, cancer, HIV, hepatitis, acute infections, or a psychiatric condition requiring treatment.

Since some donor health conditions could harm a transplant recipient, it is important that you share all information about your physical and mental health.

You must be fully informed of the known risks involved with donating and complete a full medical and psychosocial evaluation. Your decision to donate should be completely voluntary and free of pressure or guilt.

If you are interested in being evaluated as a living donor, contact our living donor program at 302-623-3866.
