Purpose:

One possible reason that weight gain after transplant may interfere with new kidney function is due to the enlargement of a kidney structure called the glomerulus. The researchers believe that modest caloric intake reduction (CIR) early after kidney transplantation can reduce the enlargement (hypertrophy) of the glomerulus associated with kidney transplantation and may improve long term allograft survival, by reducing glomerular hypertrophy mediated progressive glomerulosclerosis.
