Essential hypertension, End age, and deprivation index ranked as three most important variables in the risk of development of hypertension after donation. Logistic regression analysis showed that pre-existing essential hypertension, male gender, age at kidney donation, and low numbers of transplant providers are important risk factors for long term hypertension risk. In sub-analysis, we found that South Asian ethnicity and obesity are additional risk factors.
