Abstract

New-onset diabetes after transplantation (NODAT) remains a frequent and serious complication after kidney transplantation. We previously reported NODAT in our postkidney transplant population at a frequency of more than 50%, using the definition established by the 2003 International Guidelines. This high rate of posttransplant diabetes has serious negative consequences for future cardiovascular risk and survival after kidney transplant.
