Living kidney donors usually range in age from 18-60 years. Aging results in a gradual decline in kidney function such that the amount of transplanted kidney function becomes a limiting factor after age 60 years. Over the age of 65 years this surgery is performed rarely though there is no such cut off limit. The donor should be free from diseases like high blood pressure, diabetes, cancer, kidney disease and heart disease. Since, you are 73 years of age, I do not see you as a potential donor. You can discuss it with your doctor. Thanks and best wishes.
