MONDAY, Jan. 29, 2018 -- While donating a kidney isn't likely to shorten your life or increase your odds of heart disease or diabetes, you might face a higher chance of some other health risks, new research suggests.

Female donors also faced a nearly twofold increase in risk for pregnancy-related complications such as pre-eclampsia.
