Does kidney donation adversely affect the donor?

Q: After donating a kidney, is there any harm to the donor? What if the donor’s blood sugar levels increase? What problems will he face? For how many days does he need to stay under medical supervision?

A:Kidney donation is happening only when it has been ascertained that there will be no immediate or long term harm due to removal of kidney. More than 50 years of experience worldwide suggests kidney donation is safe and that is why it is being continued as the best treatment for kidney failure. Kidney donation has no impact on diabetes or blood sugar. So you should see a doctor or the nephrologist to look into blood sugar problem, if any.
