Dear Sir,
you will need a thorough evaluation before deciding whether you are fit to donate kidney or not. If your BP is uncontrolled or requires two or more medicines to keep it under control then kidney donation will be difficult. You should see a nephrologist who will evaluate you more fully and give a definite answer.
