FERNANDEZ CASTILLO, Rafael et al. Studying the impact of body mass index on pretransplant early renal graft function. Nutr. Hosp. [online]. 2016, vol.33, n.4, pp.930-934. ISSN 1699-5198.

Introduction: Obesity and overweight have adverse health effects contributing to the presence of oxidative metabolic and cardiovascular diseases that threaten the integrity of the graft. Objective: To investigate the influence of body mass index on pre transplant graft function one year after transplant by studying four different methods of measuring the glomerular filtration rate. Material and methods: The sample consisted of 1336 kidney transplant patients of both sexes, measurements were performed pre transplant and post transplant of biochemical parameters, anthropometric measurements and kidney function by glomerular filtration steps. Results: When an increased body mass index pretransplant occurs, there is a decrease in glomerular filtration rate measured by four different methods and greater percentage of rejections. Conclusions: A high body mass index pretransplant contributes to graft dysfunction, a decrease in glomerular filtration rate and graft complications in the first year after transplant.
