Organs That Can Be Donated: Pancreas Diseases and Disorders Malfunction or failure of the pancreas leads to diabetes—an inability to control the level of glucose in the blood.
Individuals with this condition are called diabetics and may need insulin to control the level of glucose in the blood. Diabetes can damage or cause the failure of many of the body’s organs. Because patients requiring a pancreas transplant often have kidney disease, the pancreas and kidneys are sometimes transplanted together. Failure to treat diabetes can lead to organ failure and death. Transplant Statistics
In 2003, over 450 people received a pancreas transplant.
In 2003, about 1,500 people were on the waiting list for a pancreas.
In 2003, about 30 people died while waiting for a pancreas transplant.
One year after receiving a pancreas transplant, about 95 percent of recipients are still living. Source: U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Decision: Donation, organdonor.gov LifeART Collection Images Copyright © 1989-2001 by Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, Baltimore, MD
