Abstract

Kidney transplant recipients (KTRs) commonly present with complex medical issues that are best managed jointly by both their primary care physician and the kidney transplant center. Hypertension, diabetes, dyslipidemias, and obesity are frequently present in the KTR population and the successful management of these comorbidities is essential in achieving excellent posttransplant outcomes. Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of mortality in KTRs, and interventions that mitigate the risk factors that contribute to these adverse outcomes are an important part of the long-term management of a KTR.
