Abstract

The development of posttransplantation diabetes mellitus has a major impact on the quality of life and long-term outcome. One hundred thirty-nine patients without known glucose metabolism abnormalities and treated with FK-506, methylprednisolone, and mycophenolate mofetil/azathioprine were analyzed for incidence of and risk factors for developing impaired fasting glycemia (IFG) and diabetes mellitus (DM). Using the American Diabetes Association criteria, 15% developed IFG and 32% developed DM in the first year after transplantation. High trough levels of FK-506 during the first month after transplantation (especially >15 ng/ml) and high body mass index (BMI) were significant risk factors for IFG or DM. Patients with (steroid-treated) acute rejections in addition to high trough levels of FK-506 were most prone to develop DM, whereas high BMI conferred risk of developing IFG. Patients with posttransplantation glycemic abnormalities also had higher levels of serum triglycerides at the time of transplantation, but they needed a lower dose of FK-506 to obtain higher trough levels of FK-506, suggesting metabolic differences already present before transplantation. The only risk factor retained for persistent IFG or DM beyond the first...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death.
