Metabolic syndrome found in 52 percent of patients after liver transplantation
Date:1/6/2011

Researchers from Israel have determined that more than half of liver transplant recipients develop post-transplantation metabolic syndrome (PTMS), placing them at greater risk for cardiovascular disease. Prior to transplantation only 5% of the patients were diagnosed with metabolic syndrome, but rates of obesity, hypertriglyceridemia, hypertension, and diabetes were significantly higher post transplantation. Full details of this retrospective-prevalence study are available in the January 2011 issue of Liver Transplantation, a journal published by Wiley-Blackwell on behalf of the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases.

Metabolic syndrome, which is comprised of obesity, hypertension, hyperglycemia, and dyslipidemia, is commonly seen in patients following liver transplantation and is double the rate reported for the general population. Prior studies have found that immunosuppressive medications including calcineurin inhibitors and corticosteroids; modifiable lifestyle choices such as food intake, which can contribute to weight gain and insulin resistance; and the underlying liver disease itself (chronic hepatitis C virus infection and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease), all play a significant role in the development of metabolic syndrome.

In order to determine the prevalence and risk factors associated with PTMS, Professor Ziv Ben Ari and colleagues from the Liver Transplant Unit at Rabin Medical Centerthe largest such unit in Israelreviewed the files of 252 patients who received a liver transplant between 1985 and 2007. Researchers analyzed pre- and post-transplant clinical and laboratory data, including height, weight, waist circumference, presence of diabetes, hypertension, or hyperlipidemia, and prescribed medications (immunosuppressive, anti-hypertensive, hypoglycemic, and lipid-lowering drugs).

Researchers diagnosed PTMS when at least three of the following criteria were met: increased waist circumference, ele
