Vitamin D for Healthy Kidney Transplants

A recent study demonstrated that Vitamin D levels correlate with the kidney health following a transplant. Natalie Luis writes, “The study showed that vitamin D levels were directly related to how well patients’ kidneys filtered waste out of the blood in the years after transplant surgery. Patients with lower levels of vitamin D were more likely to have an organ rejection.” Individuals with low levels of vitamin D after a kidney transplant are subjected to the possibility of numerous health discrepancies, including worsening kidney function, end-stage kidney disease, or death. Vitamin D supplements following a kidney transplant could help to improve the rate of success of kidney transplants.
