Organs you can donate while you are living include: part of the pancreas, a kidney, part of a lung, part of the intestine or part of the liver.
Single kidneys make up the majority of donations from living donors. People who are between 35 years old and 49 years old represent the biggest group of living donors. That is followed by donors, in the age group of 18 to 34, and those in the age group of 50 to 64.
Live donors should not have diabetes, high blood pressure, H.I.V., cancer, heart or kidney disease, or other infectious diseases.
