  1. Continuous variables were presented as medians and ranges (minimum–maximum). Mann-Whitney U test was used to compare between groups. Categorized variables were presented as percentages and chi-squared tests were used to detect between-group difference. P1 was the result comparing between male and female. P2 was the result comparing between living kidney donor candidates and all participants.
