Vascular Risk After Kidney Transplantation
Hypothesis: Nontraditional risk factors, such as inflammation, vitamin D deficiency, elevated PTH, insulin resistance, homocysteine, or uric acid, contribute to cardiovascular disease progression after kidney transplant.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate which traditional and nontraditional cardiovascular disease risk factors best predict progression of cardiovascular disease (CVD) using carotid intima media thickness performed by ultrasound, in kidney transplant patients.
