Live Donor Weight Loss Prior to Transplant

There is a man in my home town that is in severe need of an O kidney donor. I am O-; I took the BS test/questionnaire a few times and keep getting rejected. Is this normal? My reason is that I keep getting rejected is due to weight. The weight varies DRASTICALLY every time. Any advice much appreciated.
