    21. 21. Effect of SPK transplantation on other Macrovasc complications May make macroangiopathy worse Recent European data suggest that it may take at least 5 years to get better Improvement in outcomes due to reduced cardiac events
    22. 22. Why not ‘cure diabetes’earlier? High perioperative mortality when other treatments are available Issues with rejection and sensitisation  Make future kidney transplant harder  Hard to detect rejection Issues with long term immunosuppression  Infection  Cancer  Drug toxicity Sometimes indicated  Severe Hypoglycaemia  PTA more common in USA  Islets
    23. 23. Balance of rejection v Drug toxicity Creatinine is very sensitive marker of kidney (+pancreas) rejection High immunosuppressant levels esp Tacrolimus can also cause acute and chronic kidney injury Faced with an increased creatinine it is normally either  Tacrolimus level  Acute rejection One needs high dose immunosuppression, the other needs reduction  problem!
    24. 24. ADA guidelines (T1DM) Established ESRD in patients who qualify for or already have a kidney transplant (SPK or PAK) Frequent acute and severe metabolic complications (hypoglycaemia, hyperglycaemia, DKA) requiring medical attention (PTA) Consistent failure of insulin-based management to prevent acute complications (PTA) Clinical and emotional problems with exogenous insulin therapy that are so severe as to be incapacitating (PTA)
