Kidney TransplantKidney transplant is always spoken highly of by people with kidney failure or ESRD. Most of these patients believe this therapy can give them a brand new life with fewer limitations. In fact, somethings still need to be noted with a donated kidney. Today, we are here to talk about 4 things patients should pay attention to after kidney transplant.

Top 1: Develop a healthy diet and lifestyle

Drinking alcohol and smoking can cause damage to capillaries, lung and liver or even tumor, so as to threaten the transplanted kidney. Therefore, patients after kidney transplant should avoid alcohol and smoking.

Besides, a scientific diet is always our eternal topic even though some patients have accepted kidney transplant. In view of this, foods high in salt, fat, sugar and purine should be kept away after kidney transplant. Also, dietetic hygiene is also quite important, because these patients’ resistance is relatively low.

Top 2: Reduce the times to go public places

Because of low immunity, these patients are susceptible to infections, so they had better avoid to go to public places especially in the season of infected diseases. In addition, personal hygiene is also very important.

Top 3: Handle your wound timely even if it is small

This tip is essential. This is because wound, either big or small, can cause infections easily. If the wound is located in the face, it may lead to intracranial infection. What’s worse, the spread of any infection may cause sepsis to threaten your life.

Top 4: Prevent excess sexual life

Generally, patients can have sexual life 2-3 years after kidney transplant, if their kidney function recovers to normal. However, they should avoid excess sexual life. Once they have fatigue, back pain or some symptoms, try to prevent the sexual life.

Kidney transplant is a treatment that makes patients a chance to live a brand new life, but many things still need to notice to guarantee the transplanted kidney work as long as possible.
