There is limited data with diabetes management in liver transplant recipients and associated outcomes, this study aims to evaluate the long-term diabetes management in this population.
This was a single center, retrospective study of post-transplant diabetes management in adult liver transplant recipients from 2010 through 2015. Post-transplant diabetes was determined by the use of anti-hyperglycemic therapy at POD90. Patients <18 years old, who received multi-organ transplants, or had graft loss within POD30 were excluded. Diabetes control was determined by a mean glucose over the first year of ≤153mg/dL, which correlates with a HgbA1c of 7%.
154 patients were identified as post-transplant diabetes and included in the study. Glycemic control was achieved in 104(67.5%) patients at 1-year. Significant pre-transplant differences were seen in the number of diabetes medications. Post-transplant glycemic control had differences in LOS, time to discharge follow-up, insulin use, and duration of antifungals, but not with immunosuppression exposures. A logistic regression analysis found the number of anti-diabetic medications used prior to transplant was a predictor of glycemic control in year 1. Exposure to mTOR inhibitors and tacrolimus exposure levels were predictive of glycemic control.
Pre-transplant diabetes control was predictive of control post-transplant and adjustments in mTOR inhibitors and tacrolimus may be associated with glucose control.
