Why liver transplant recipients should exercise regularly
from By Joy Burgess
From Sept. 19:
Recent research on liver transplant recipients shows that patients have an increased risk of metabolic syndrome after the transplantation surgery. According to one study conducted by Eric R. Kallwitz, M.D., a liver specialist from the Loyola University Medical Center, about 58 percent of patients develop metabolic syndrome after undergoing a liver transplant. The study also suggests that the onset of metabolic syndrome may be reduced by exercise.
