Kidney Transplant Rejection
The immune system attacks and destroys anything that your body thinks is not
supposed to be there, such as germs, viruses and your newly received kidney.
Rejection may occur at
any time after transplant, and immunosuppressive medications will help
decrease or prevent your body's reaction to the new organ. Not taking medication
as directed is the most
common reason for rejection.
Creatinine is a waste product that is normally removed from the blood by the
kidney. The level of serum creatinine (CR or SCR) is measured daily while you
are in the hospital
and at every clinic visit. This test helps to determine how well your new
kidney is working. The normal range for the CR level is 0.7-1.4; this range may
vary slightly. If the
creatinine level rises too high, it may indicate a rejection episode. Other
causes for increased levels include kidney infections, dehydration or incorrect
drug levels in your
system. Clinic visits are more frequent in the first few months after
transplant to monitor creatinine levels.
So after renal transplantation serum creatinine levels will also rise this is
some patients will appear, the symptoms of kidney transplantation and come back
before. So when

method to reduce?
