Can anyone have a kidney transplant?

Not everyone who goes through the workup will be able to have a kidney transplant.

For example, if you have a serious heart problem, cancer or an active infection, you will not be able to have a kidney transplant.

The tests you do as part of your workup will show if you are well enough to have a kidney transplant.

Remember there is information earlier about how recipients get on the kidney transplant waiting list.
