Kidney Transplanted Patient Medicines:
Immunosuppressant drugs are used to suppress the immune system from rejecting the donor kidney. These medicines must be taken for the rest of the recipient’s life. I am taking a mixture of tacrolimus, mycophenolate, and prednisolone. Tacrolimus, which causes nephrotoxicity. Blood levels of both must be monitored closely and if the recipient seems to have declining renal function or proteinuria, a biopsy may be necessary to determine whether this is due to rejection or tacrolimus intoxication.
After kidney transplant Medication timings (medicine timings):
At morning 6:00 AM and Evening 6:00PM Tacrolimus and Mycopheolate dosage levels are as per doctor recommendation.
For first 100 days from the date of transplant we should take Valganciclovir at 2:00 PM
At Morning 8:00 AM: Calcium supplementary calcium carbonate, B complex, Blood pressure medications and prednisolone
Evening 8:00PM: Calcium supplementary calcium carbonate, B complex, Blood pressure medications and metoprolol
Kidney Transplanted Patient Diet:
Kidney transplant patient should not take the following fruit grapefruit, pomegranate, green tea products, citrus fruit like lemon, orange etc. and high potassium fruits like banana Bananas, Apricots, Cantaloupe, Sweet potatoes, Yogurt, Spinach, Avocados and etc. These food products are known to interact with the transplant medications, specifically tacrolimus, cyclosporin and sirolimus; the blood levels of these drugs may be increased, potentially leading to an overdose and external hotel foods like Fast food, junk food, high salt content chips, potato chips and hotel foods.
Kidney Transplanted Patient Difficulty in Post transplantation (after transplantation)
We should careful from infection; Infections due to the immunosuppressant drugs used in people with kidney transplants most commonly occur in mucocutaneous areas, the urinary tract and the respiratory tract. Most common Infective agents are bacteria, viral, fungal and protozoan.
Infection is the cause of death in about one third of people with renal transplants, and pneumonias account for 50% of the patient deaths from infection.
