Kidneys From Diabetic Donors May Benefit Many Transplant Candidates

• Patients who received kidney transplants from donors with diabetes had better survival compared with those who remained on the waitlist. • Patients at high risk of dying while on the waitlist and those at centers with long wait times may benefit the most from transplantation with kidneys from diabetic donors.

Kidney Transplants From Diabetic Donors Will Save More Lives, Sooner

In a study published today in the Clinical Journal of the American Society of Nephrology, researchers from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, have found that the best chance of survival, for older patients, those who live in areas with long waits for transplantation, or those who already have diabetes, may come from accepting a kidney from a deceased donor who had diabetes.

Study Compares Different Measures of Body Fat for Predicting Kidney Function Decline

• In a new study, a higher amount of body fat was linked with an increased risk of developing chronic kidney disease. • Simple ways of measuring body size—such as waist circumference or body mass index—provided similar information on risk as more sophisticated methods, such as imaging scans, to measure different types of body fat.
