I'm new to this.  Looking into find a living donor, but also needing to make some decisions regarding dialysis.  Would love to hear from you your experiences.

Hi everyone.  New to the site, and trying to find out some information and support.  My husband has reached stage 4 of Kidney Disease from his Alports Syndrome.
Why do we have to wait to the point of dialysis or 10%, before a transplant.  Can I not just give him one of my kidneys now? while he's still fairly healthy?

I thought I would attempt to answer a couple of the questions...

Its likely best to ask the doctors but this link explains the compatibility including the positive and negative parts.

Everyone is different after hemo in centre but I personally was exhausted after each run.

quick question: when it comes to being a compatible blood type between a live donor and a recipient, does it matter if a blood type is positive or negative, or is it only the blood type like AB, B, etc. that matters? I've googled this but it's hard to articulate what I'm asking...

Hi guys I'm 27 and have just started hemodialysis at the hospital. I'm waiting to hear all the options that I have regarding keeping on track with life? What is nocturnal dialysis is that 8 hours a night? I use to have that when I was 13 years old. The one I have been recommended is four hours three times a week which seems to be a drain. I seem to be pretty tried after a session was this normal for you too?
