A new study examined the effectiveness, complications, and postoperative access to transplantation in end-stage chronic kidney disease as well and bariatric surgery inpatients who have already undergone kidney transplant. Kidneys filter the flood, removing wastes and toxins, allowing them to be expelled through urine. Chronic kidney disease is a condition where one or both kidneys fail entirely or partially.
There is no cure for the condition, except for organ transplant. Bariatric surgery is
a term referring to any one of a group of weight loss surgeries including gastric bypass. Researchers reviewed 30 studies and found the surgery has a general positive effect on those who have had kidney transplants. They found only a 2% mortality rate and a 7% complication rate. One-fifth of the patients had access to a transplant. Researchers noted the lack of a control group meant they could not come to a conclusion on this question.
Obesity is one of the risk factors for developing kidney disease, heart disease, diabetes, hypertension as well as a number of other chronic ailments and can often lead to a decline in kidney function, negatively impacting quality of life and causing significant health complications.
