Healthy elderly kidney donation will not reduce life

A new US study shows that healthy elderly people who donate kidney do not differ in longevity and cardiovascular health compared to healthy elderly people who do not have kidney donors.

Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania recently reported in the American Journal of transplant that they studied more than 3300 elderly donors and compared them with the same number of healthy elderly non donor kidneys. After nearly 8 years of follow-up, the researchers found no difference in the risk of mortality or cardiovascular disease among the two groups. In addition, kidney donors do not have an increased risk of diabetes.

At the same time, the study leader, assistant professor at the University of Pennsylvania, Peter Chis also pointed out that the elderly kidney does not increase the risk of heart disease or death, but compared with the young donors, a relatively long period of recovery of elderly donors after surgery, hernia may appear short-term complications.
