I had a live donor transplant and I wish I'd have realised that the anti rejection drugs can cause diabetes. If I had my time again I would cut out all sugar well before my transplant in the hopes that would help not get diabetes as I unfortunately now have Type 2 caused by anti rejection meds. For those who get the call for a cadaver transplant again I would advise start cutting down on sugar when on list and cut it out completely after transplant.


My husband got diabetes after his tx. The tacrolimus sent his blood glucose sky high and no amount of cutting down on sugar helped. He almost cut sugar out of his diet altogether. He's now on Metformin for the diabetes but this is causing a lot of problems.
