Renal transplantation (RT) is a standard treatment for end-stage renal disease, standing at more than 90% survival rate after
one yr, and at over a 70% survival rate after five yr. The majority of transplanted patients enjoy an excellent quality of
life but complications can occur in the long term, and can develop subclinically in otherwise well subjects; there are various
underestimated nutritional and metabolic aspects, including the so-called post-transplant overweight and obesity. During the
post-transplant period, the use of immunosuppressants, corticosteroids, calcineurin inhibitors, and the presence of risk factors,
including non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and kidney and bone complications have been largely implicated in development of
obesity. Strategies to reduce the progression to obesity and increased body mass index are mandatory. Follow up of RT patients
should include careful screening for diabetes, and dyslipidemia and to support weight reduction with a carefully constructed
program, particularly based on diet modification and exercise. With early identification and appropriate and aggressive
management, excellent long-term health outcomes and acceptable survival can be achieved.
