Hi, may I answer your health queries right now ? Please type your query here... MY FATHER SUFFRINIG FROM DIABETIC NEPHROPATHY SINCE 2008 .IS ON DIALISIS FOR LAST TWO WEEK ,AND IS ALSO SUFFRING FROM PRIMARY HYPERTENSION.. CAN U GIVE SUGGESTION ABOUT RENAL TRANSPLANT?
Nowadays renal transplant is routinely performing in diabetic nephropathy cases. However cardiac status and abdominal vessel status should be checked before transplant. If your father have no problems in these issues he can go for transplant. Survival after transplant is same as for non diabetic patients. All the best. If you have any questions feel free to contact me.
