Eating healthy and exercising is important for transplant recipients as the side-effects of anti-rejection medications can put them at risk for diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol.
Transplantliving.org is a wonderful online resource to share with your transplant patients and their caregivers. In addition to providing general information about the transplant process, diseases, organ facts, statistics, financing a transplant, medications, etc., the website is a place for patients to join support groups and obtain information on healthy living.
