Kidney Transplant High Bun Problem

In medicine: a transfer from one body or body part to another of an organ (liver, heart, lung, kidney, pancreas bowel) or tissue (hand, face, hair).

I had a liver and kidney transplant 2.5 years ago. My lab results are all normal except my AL T is elevated by six points. What are possible causes?
Kidneys anatomically require connection to an artery for blood supply, a vein for blood drainage and the bladder for urine outflow. In a transplant a healthy kidney is disconnected from its usual attachments and moved to a new location with those 3 requirements (artery, vein, bladder). This may be an auto-txp - somewhere else in your own body; or an allo-txp -from ...Read more
