Life of the kidney and the need for future transplants

The use of new transplant drugs to keep body from rejecting the kidney has made it possible to keep a new kidney for a long time. A key point in keeping the kidney working well is staying on a strict medication schedule and following medical advice. Some kidneys can work for many years. The average life of a kidney transplant is about 10-15 years but they can last as long as 30 years. Some can keep working for a longer time. Children may need  a second or even a third kidney transplant if the first one fails. Remember that many new advances and new medications are being introduced every day.
