BACKGROUND: Posttransplantation diabetes mellitus (PTDM) is a common metabolic complication in renal transplant recipients. Some studies have revealed predisposing or protective HLA genes for PTDM.
OBJECTIVE: To describe the characteristics of PTDM in patients in the south of China.
METHODS: The present study included 195 living-donor kidney transplant recipients. Informed consent was obtained from all participants, and the study was approved by our Institutional Ethics Committee. Each donor-recipient pair was related. Twenty-two patients had PTDM, whereas 173 did not. The frequency of each HLA phenotype was compared between these 2 groups. The 195 patients were divided into 2 groups according to immunosuppression regimen, a cyclosporine group and a tacrolimus group, and the incidence of PTDM was compared between the groups. Patients were then subdivided into 2 groups according to age, an elderly group (age 40 years or older) and a younger group (age younger than 40 years), and the incidence of PTDM was calculated and compared between these 2 groups.
RESULTS: HLA-A30 and HLA-DR7 seem to be predisposing genes for PTDM in patients in the south of China; Low dosages of calcineurin inhibitors were used in our center, There was no significant difference in the incidence of PTDM between the CsA and Tac groups; The incidence of PTDM in the elderly group was significantly higher than that in the younger group.
CONCLUSION: Patients receiving HLA-A30 and HLA-DR7 antigens, and elderly patients are at higher risk of developing PTDM. Tacrolimus does not significantly increase the incidence of PTDM.
