After your kidney transplant operation, you will start taking anti-rejection medication to keep your body from attacking the transplanted kidney. This medication is essential for a successful transplant, but it will decrease your ability to fight infections.
There are many ways you can take a proactive approach to your health.
Once you’ve been approved for kidney transplant and a suitable kidney is found, you’ll be prepped for the transplant operation. Whether you have a planned living kidney donation or are receiving a kidney from a deceased donor, knowing what to expect during the surgery can help ease your mind and prepare you for your next steps.
Once you have decided to pursue kidney transplant under the guidance of your nephrologist, there are several steps to take before you can be considered a candidate for transplant.
At the Nephrology Associates of Greater Cincinnati, we are able to refer you to a local transplant center. There are two kidney transplant centers in the greater Cincinnati area: the University of Cincinnati Medical Center and the Christ Hospital Health Network.
Staying active is an important part of your kidney care and overall wellbeing. Even simple exercises can have a positive effect on your body and mind.
Exercising may seem counterintuitive for patients with kidney disease when you frequently feel tired. Getting enough rest is important, but adding exercise to your care regimen may help the condition of your kidneys and actually increase your energy levels.
Finding an exercise routine that works for you can also help you sleep better, gain control of your weight and blood pressure, improve your mood, and increase your strength.
The Nephrology Associates of Greater Cincinnati is proud to announce that Dr. Arshdeep Tindni has again been honored as one of the top doctors in the tristate by Cincinnati Magazine.
Every year, Cincinnati Magazine publishes its
Top Doctors list. The annual survey is sent to more than 6,000 physicians and asks whom these medical professionals would turn to if they or someone they care about needed medical attention. The respondents were required to nominate someone other than themselves.
This year’s honorees include 768 physicians in more than 50 specialties. Every doctor on the list garnered at least seven votes.
Dr. Tindni has been practicing nephrology for over five years and is a member of the American Society for Nephrology (ASN), the National Kidney Foundation (NKF), and the Renal Physician Association (RPA).
