Abstract

Patients who have undergone kidney transplant are at increased risk for heart disease, new-onset diabetes, metabolic syndrome, and certain malignancies, in addition to opportunistic infections associated with immunosuppression. This article describes guidelines for routine management of kidney transplant recipients in primary care, as well as how to recognize risk factors and complications.
