Translational Session

From Genes to Jeans: Obesity in Kidney Transplantation

November 18, 2016 | 04:30 PM - 06:30 PM

Location: W183C

Session Description

Weight gain occurs at alarming rates after kidney transplant, impacting multiple health outcomes with high costs. This session explores the association of gene expression profiles, predictors, and association of dietary intake with post-transplant weight gain. Innovative technology interventions are highlighted.

Session Objectives

Upon completion of this session, the participant will be able to: 1. analyze gene expression profiles to understand mechanisms of obesity after kidney transplant; 2. describe pretransplant predictors of 1-year weight gain outcomes after kidney transplant; 3. explore the relationship between dietary intake and weight gain after kidney transplant; 4. analyze surgical interventions for obesity after kidney transplant; and 5. evaluate nonsurgical and technology interventions to manage weight gain after kidney transplant.
