Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The comprehensive care of the kidney transplant (KT). patient includes a broad clinical assessment to detect and stage metabolic disease both before and after transplantation. In this review, the metabolic consequences of KT in both the short and long term will be explored in the context of new data and a synthesis proposed based upon what has been studied for over two decades. A review of the changes in epidemiology introduces a discussion of the current state of the literature for the diagnosis and management of diabetes after KT, obesity and the metabolic syndrome.
