Are some patients too heavy for a new kidney?
Date:1/14/2013

here there are gaps in the existing research and where current data is too light to be able to draw solid conclusions," said Lentine. "These gaps are what 'outcomes research' is designed to remedy.

"We've figured out some key questions to ask so that we can help our patients have successful transplants and healthy lives."

BOTTOM LINE

  • Obesity appears to affect kidney transplant patients in a negative way, leading to complications during their recovery.
  • Kidney patients should know that their weight may affect the success of a transplant and should work with their doctor to manage it in a healthy way.
  • Doctors need future studies to examine the upper BMI limit at which kidney transplantation should not be recommended for obese patients, to refine ways of measuring obesity, and to define the benefits of losing weight prior to a kidney transplant.
