Effectiveness Study of Pramlintide to Treat Post-Transplant Diabetes Mellitus
Effectiveness of Pramlintide on Control of Post-Transplant Diabetes Mellitus
Post-transplant diabetes mellitus (PTDM) develops in up to 30% of patients undergoing solid organ transplantation. This disease is difficult to treat as the levels of glycemia fluctuate in response to variations in doses of steroid and other immunosuppressive agents. At the same time, poorly controlled hyperglycemia affects negatively graft function and survival as well as on the ability of the immunocompromised host to fight infections. The investigators hypothesize that the addition of Pramlintide (Symlin) to the management of patients with PTDM would help patients with post-transplant diabetes attain better control at the critical time of titration of immunosuppressive regimens. The primary objective of this proposal is to improve glycemic control of diabetes with Pramlintide in patients with post-transplant diabetes at 3 and 6 months of therapy.
