thanks.

This makes sense to me.. the older we get our organs age... deteriorate, ect.

My dad is in stage 2 of CKD. But it is the least of his issues... his heart only works at 22%, but he is still KICKING it!

Kidneys from older donors often do not survive long after transplantation because of certain structural dysfunctions that can occur as the kidney ages, according to a new study. The findings indicate that the number of functioning glomeruli—the filtering units of the kidney—drops significantly with age, leading to a self-perpetuating injury in the rest of the kidney.
