  Purpose

The graft survival in kidney transplantation has been improving after the introduction of new immunosuppressive agents. Therefore, other complications after transplantation are concerned; one of those is obesity. Several factors are attributable to obesity in kidney transplant recipients.

The body composition such as fat mass and lean mass is important concept in overweight patients. Some studies have been conducted on the change of body composition in kidney transplants. However, all of them are studied among Caucasians or using dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA).

In this study, the investigators plan to study the body composition among Asian kidney transplant recipients using the bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA).
