According to findings in the American Journal of Transplantation, there was little to no mood disturbance, body image concerns, fear of kidney failure, or life dissatisfaction among living kidney donors postdonation.
The researchers examined 193 living kidney donors (LKDs) and 20 healthy controls (HCs), and found that there were no incremental changes in the outcomes overtime and no significant differences between the two groups.
