Study explores best pre-transplant weight loss options
from Medical Xpress
Vanderbilt researchers are comparing two types of weight-loss options to determine which is the most effective in helping obese patients reach a more ideal weight before undergoing kidney transplant surgery. Obesity is a two-edged sword when it comes to kidney health. Excessive weight is a key factor in the development of acute kidney disease and kidney failure, which can then lead to the need for life-saving dialysis or kidney transplant.
