Background: Outcomes of kidney transplant recipients with increased body mass index (BMI) remain controversial. We studied the relationship between change of BMI and transplant kidney function especially during 1 year after transplantation .
Methods: We performed an observational cohort study of all recipients of kidney transplants at our 2 centers from March, 2009 to June, 2014 to determine if change of BMI is associated with transplant kidney function as measured by estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR). Recipient BMI and eGFR were calculated at pre-transplant, 1, 3, 6, 9, and 12 months after transplantation (POM). Corelation of change of BMII and eGFR was evaluated.
Results: A total of 634 patients were studied. There was strong negative corelation between chane of BMI and eGFR during pretransplant to POM 1 (corelation efficient -0.406, p<0.0001) and POM 1 to 3 (corelation efficient -0.324, p=0.004) respectively.
Conclusions: We found that increase of BMI caused significant decrease of renal function as eGFR especially in the initial 3 months after kidney transplantation.
