C urrently in the United States, 35.7% of adults are obese (BMI ≥ 30) and this demographic also represents the patients who have end stage kidney disease. Obese patients on dialysis wait longer to receive a kidney transplant compared to their non-obese counterparts. There are many reasons behind this but perhaps several factors such as risk of delayed graft function, wound complications, inferior allograft survival and other co morbidities make these patients not the greatest candidates for kidney transplantation. Additionally, obese patients do very well on dialysis (obesity-dialysis paradox). Our paper examines the barriers for obese patients to receive a kidney transplant and how we could help those patients overcome the barriers and get them transplanted.
