Regular medical check-ups are scheduled to assess kidney function through blood tests, including measurements of serum creatinine levels and glomerular filtration rate (GFR). These tests help determine how well the transplanted kidney is filtering waste from the blood. Additionally, monitoring for signs of rejection or complications, such as infections or cardiovascular issues, is essential.
Immunosuppressive medications, which are crucial for preventing organ rejection, require careful management.
Regular communication between transplant recipients and nephrologists is vital for addressing any concerns, optimizing medication regimens, and ensuring a proactive approach to long-term kidney transplant success. Our nephrologists are skilled in follow-up care and make accurate adjustments to medication dosages to maintain a balance between preventing rejection and minimizing side effects. They also educate patients on the importance of medication adherence and recognizing signs of potential complications.
