Premature coronary artery disease

HUS patients who receive kidney transplants are more likely to develop premature coronary artery disease.

Coronary artery disease (myocardial infarction) is the most common cause of death in the transplant population and is largely responsible for shortened lifespan.  Treatable predisposing factors include elevated blood lipid levels (LDL cholesterol, triglycerides), hypertension, smoking, obesity, and sedentary lifestyle.
