A patient reaches end-stage renal disease when their kidney stops working. As a result of this renal failure, the toxic waste inside the body starts accumulating, leading to other chronic conditions. In such case, the only resort patients can opt for is dialysis or kidney transplantation. The common causes of this disease are:

Kidney transplant can offer the patient to have a normal life because the transplanted kidney replaced the failing kidney. Life of these patients entirely depends on drugs. They take it throughout their life as it allows the new kidney inside their body to stay healthy. Some of the drugs can show some side effects as well so the professional of these hospitals keeps on checking with the patient at regular intervals so that the patient can live a hassle-free life.
The specialist of the hospitals allows the patients to explain their will and accordingly they proceed with the procedures. Where some of the patients choose to have a transplant just after beginning dialysis while others consider it before starting the dialysis. In some cases, the patients who are under dialysis can already have severe health conditions such as any active infections or cancer which makes it impossible to conduct a kidney transplant. The doctors perform transplant accordingly.
