2 doctors agree

In brief: Depends

You can live with only one kidney and if the person you are donating to is important to you then i feel it is okay.
You need to be healthy and minimal risk factors.

In brief: Depends

Just because one wants to be a living donor, it does not mean that your surgeon will agree to perform the donor surgery.
The decision to be a living donor needs to be made after completing a thorough donor evaluation. If you have risk factors for chronic kidney disease such as hypertension, diabetes, or family history of CKD or renal failure, you should have a good discussion with your MDs.
