    Help

    My girlfriend is a very brittle diabetic. Her insulin pump isn't helping! I heard a kidney and partial pancreas could save her life!!!! Can I live without them?

    You can give a kidney relatively easily enough (just a lot of testing to make sure you are healthy). If you are not a match for the kidney, you could be part of a paired exchange.

    As for thepancreas, living donation is extremely rare and there are only very few transplant centers that do them.

    What stage is her kidney ailment at? ls she on dialysis? You don't want to do the transplant too soon.
