Abstract

Hyperkalemia is the most frequent electrolyte abnormality found in whole organ transplant recipients receiving either cyclosporine (CsA) or tacrolimus (FK506). Recipients of a simultaneous pancreas kidney (SPK) transplant with bladder drainage may be particularly susceptible to hyperkalemia secondary to sodium loss from the bladder-drained pancreas, leading to decreased sodium delivery to potassium secretory sites of the kidney. We looked at the incidence of hyperkalemia in 34 type I diabetic SPK recipients transplanted at our center over the period from 1993 to 1995 and compared this with a cohort of 25 type I diabetic recipients of a kidney alone (K(Tx)) transplant. The incidence of hyperkalemia was 73.5% in recipients of an SPK, while it was 44% in K(Tx) recipients (P
