Kidney Transplant Travel Insurance - JS Travel Insurance

JS Travel Insurance provides Single Trip and Annual Multi Trip Travel Insurance to those who have had a Kidney Transplant.

Kidney Transplant Travel Insurance

Kidneys are a vital organ in the body, removing waste products from urine. When the kidneys stop working properly and lose their ability to filter blood for whatever reason, a condition known as kidney failure, a Kidney Transplant is usually the only treatment. A Kidney Transplant is a surgery during which the patient’s kidneys are replaced by one or two kidney from a donor, either living or recently deceased. The new kidney(s) will then take over the function of cleaning the patient’s blood.

Kidney Transplant Medical Questions

You may be asked the following questions when seeking travel cover:

  • Are you currently on dialysis?
  • How long is it since you had your transplant?
  • Have you had any episodes of rejection within the last year?
  • Was the transplanted kidney donated by a family member?
  • Have you been admitted to hospital in the last 12 months for treatment related to your transplant?

If you are travelling with others, we can include them on the policy even if they have not had a Kidney Transplant.

Common Types of Renal Failure

Common types of Renal Disease which may result in the need for Kidney Transplant include:

  • Malignant hypertension
  • Diabetes
  • Infection
  • Polycystic kidney disease
  • Lupus

Kidney donors have to have a tissue match to the person needing a kidney, therefore people with rarer tissue types may be on a waiting list for longer. Kidney matches are based on factors including:

  • Blood group
  • Age
  • Fitness
  • Genetic tissue type

Reasons you may not be fit to receive a new kidney include:

  • Cardiac diseases
  • Pulmonary insufficiency
  • Hepatitis
  • Tobacco use
  • Alcohol abuse
  • Obesity
  • Terminal illness

Patients who are deemed fit for transplant surgery must carry a pager with them at all times in case a donor organ becomes available. After surgery, a patient must take immunosuppressive drugs to prevent rejection by the body. This means that you should avoid travelling to areas of poor sanitation as you have an increased risk of infection. Ensure that you have enough medication to last the length of your trip and carry all medication in hand luggage in case of delay or loss of luggage.
