Most patients can be counseled about these changes pre-transplant to prevent inordinate gains of weight. Management of obesity after transplantation is best carried out using a multidisciplinary approach that includes behavior modification, exercise counseling and extensive and continuing nutritional counseling with appropriate use of group support techniques.

In summary, recipient obesity may pre-dispose to DGF especially at the upper extreme of obesity. Most studies, however, do not demonstrate associations between obesity and acute rejection episodes both early and late [28, 29, 40, 41]. It appears, therefore that any impact of recipient obesity on transplant outcomes is likely independent of acute rejection. Post-transplant HTN complicates the majority of transplants (up to 90%) in the calcineurin inhibitor era [42, 43]. In the general population, HTN is twice as common in those who are obese than in the non-obese [44]; mortality risk increases with increasing elevations of blood pressure even in patients within the normal range weight range [45].
