For Organ Transplant, Rejection Prophylaxis “All praises to program. I have not had any problems with rejections. Liver transplant Date 2011. I’ve had some itching and my sleeping is awful. But my main problem follows. I have developed NODM (New Onset Diabetes Management) and I simply cannot lose weight, instead , I am gaining and CANNOT LOSE. I EXERCISE AT LEAST 1 1/2 HRS DAILY, MY DIET IS EXCELLENT AND I’M A MODEL PATIENT. Yet my post transplant diabetes is out of control. I am hovering around 7.0 and I am literally killing myself exercising, eating right, taking meds correctly, etc. Been seen by 4 Endocrinologists….more oral meds and more insulin. Just this week, I’m been told to take Glipizide maximum daily dose, Novolog insulin, 9 units X3, Novolin 28Us/10Us & Junevia”

For Organ Transplant, Rejection Prophylaxis “Itching was bad in lower legs especially my ankles for a few months after liver transplant in June 2016. I had hand trembling where it was hard to write or hold things steady like utensils for several months. These cleared up about 3 months out from transplant. Also, though lesser in degree was dizziness, confusion, tingling in legs, prickly feeling in legs, fatigue, loss of taste, urination about every hour at night. These decreased or ceased after 4 months. I have put back on weight (40 lbs) that I needed to put on and am now stable at a healthy weight.Overall, taking prograf now, one year out, is good. Though I am having trouble sleeping thru the night. I wake up around 3 am and do not get back to sleep until 5-6 am.”
