Abstract

Patients who undergo organ transplantation receive immunosuppressive drugs in the posttrans-plant period. All of these drugs influence host metabolic response or alter nutrient intake. One of the most prominent aspects of the posttransplant period is the occurrence of hyperlipidemia, which may require dietary or pharmacologic control. Dietary recommendations for this patient population include limiting carbohydrate intake, restricting caloric intake to maintain ideal body weight, and maintaining a low cholesterol/saturated fat diet.
