kidney transplantation

Q: I am 25 years old and I got my kidney transplanted, 2 years back. I am well now but on medication. I take Wysolone 7.5 mg morning and also some BP tablets like Irovel 150 mg and Amlodac. I was suffering from glomerulo-nephritis. And still my 24 hours urine protein report is not that well (urine protein = 200 mgs/day) whereas my urea is 35mg% and creatinine is 1.1mg% Does the new kidney (fathers kidney) running the risk of getting affected by this protein loss? Can I marry and live a successful married life?

A:From the data available you have undergone a successful kidney transplantation and are maintaining good graft function two years after the transplantation. The proteinuria of 200 mg% is not very significant and by itself may not represent an increased risk of graft failure in future as it may be related to uncontrolled B.P. or could also be coming from the native kidneys although less likely. However the same needs to be repeated at an interval to see the trend. Only a significant rise in protein excretion would warrant further investigations to exclude a few relevant possibilities. You can surely lead a successfull and normal married life.
