SGLT-2 Inhibitors Use in Renal Transplant Patients with Diabetes: A Brief Review of the Current Literature.


6 days 4 hours ago

Sodium-glucose co-transporter-2 (SGLT-2) inhibitors are a novel class of oral hypoglycemic agents commonly prescribed in type-2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). They have been shown to slow the progression of diabetic nephropathy and to improve cardiovascular outcomes in high-risk individuals, although major cardiovascular and renal outcome clinical trials have excluded renal transplant patients. The aim of this review was to determine the outcomes and the safety of the use of SGLT2 inhibitors in renal transplant patients with diabetes.

Although reported in 3-20% of pediatric KTR, it is not characterized as well as in adults. This study describes the incidence and risk factors associated with the development of PTDM in pediatric KTR.
