Short Description

Post-Transplant Diabetes Mellitus (PTDM) and obesity are frequent complications

after renal transplantation. PTDM affects up to 30% of renal transplant recipients,

which doubles the prevalence of type 2 diabetes observed in the general population.

The consequences of PTDM are severe: it is associated with a reduced patient

survival, high risk of infections and cardiovascular disease, diminishes quality of life

and increases health care expenditure. Obesity, particularly associated with

metabolic syndrome -metabolically unhealthy obesity- is frequent after

transplantation and is associated with increased risk for allograft dysfunction. In this

CME we will evaluate diverse aspects of PTDM and obesity including: pathogenesis,

impact, long-term evolution and treatment, as well as the consequences of obesity

and metabolic syndrome in renal transplantation.
