What is the diet of a renal transplant patient?
Q: What is the diet of a renal transplant patient(completed 4 years) & who has implanted a stent in his heart a year back?
A:You should not need a special diet if your new kidney is functioning well, but you should be careful about your general health and the positive things you can do to improve it. Since it has already been an year when you got the stent inserted, I am sure your artery has already healed. You need to take a low fat -low cholesterol diet to prevent any further complications. Watch your weight and exercise regularly.
