Does having epilepsy or a history of seizures exclude a person from being a living donor? I continue to have abnormal EEG readings and am required to stay on Keppra permanently.

Someone who has well controlled seizure disorder could be considered for a kidney donor.  Each individual transplant center has the option to choose who can and who cannot be a kidney donor.  If you wish to be considered for kidney donation, you should contact a kidney transplant center and ask to be evaluated.
