Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Post-transplant diabetes mellitus (PTDM) is one of the important metabolic complications occurring in about 10–20% of the patients following kidney transplantation [1]. In addition, about 30% of patients develop prediabetes after kidney transplantation [2]. It is crucial for physicians taking care of transplant patients to be familiar with this common clinical condition with prognostic significance, as the prevalence of PTDM is expected to increase due to an increase in the lifespan of transplant recipients [1]. Here we describe a case of PTDM and discuss risk factors, diagnosis, and management of PTDM.
