Transplants may benefit obese kidney patients

NEW YORK, July 27: After kidney transplants, the risk of death over the next year falls just as much among obese kidney failure patients as it does for thinner people, says a new study. Researchers found that the risk of an obese person dying during the year after a kidney transplant dropped about 66 percent, compared to obese people who remained on dialysis. That’s equal to the benefit thinner people get from a transplant. (agencies)
