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?

Thank you so much for the link! The chart is exactly what I was looking for!

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?

I also run nocturnal hemo dialysis at home. Just coming up on one year of home hemo. The dialysis is good but have trouble sleeping. I do sleep more now than when I first started but it is still a problem. I don't work right now but I am taking one class a semester at university to keep me sharp.....well that is as much as I can handle right now.

I am a 34 year old on dialysis and work full time for an Engineering company.  I am in the final stages of booking a transplant with my cousin.  I have 2 children (14 year old girl Chanel and 4 year old boy Nathan). I have another one due in January so my life is full of surprises. I do dialysis at home to allow me freedom in my everyday life.  I love nocturnal dialysis and have lots of tips and info if anyone wants to talk about it.  Ask me anything anytime!
