Abstract

Obesity is very frequently found after renal transplantation (Tx). It may represent risk factor for development of atherosclerosis and chronic allograft nephropathy. In a prospective randomized metabolic study we monitored for a period of 12 months a total of 427 patients (pts) (M 228/F 199) aged 20-70 yrs after Tx. All patients were treated with cyclosporin A and prednisone at standard doses. We compared the findings of 118 pts with a body mass index (BMI) ~30 (kg/m2, Group I) with data obtained from 309 pts with BMI
