Donating kidneys only results in small raised risk of kidney disease
Donating kidneys only results in small raised risk of kidney disease (February 13, 2014 - Insidermedicine) From Baltimore - Kidney donations only result in a small increased risk of kidney disease, according to a report published in JAMA. Researchers reviewed data on nearly 100,000 kidney donors, as well as a group of 20,000 healthy controls taking part in a long term study. They found that though there was a small increased risk of end-stage renal disease among the donors when compared to healthy controls, the risk was still much lower than individuals in the general population.
