If you are very thin or very fat then you are at higher risks in regards to liver transplantation. Being underweight or overweight is thus not a good proposition when you want to go for liver transplantation. Recent medical reports suggest that such patients hold greater risks associated with a transplantation process. High illnesses and even death, post transplantation has even been noticed with such patients. The researchers at “Liver Transplantation Journal” have confirmed of this study.
Middle weight patients go for the least amount of risk related factors in case of liver transplantation. Dr. Andre A.S. Dick from the University of Washington Medical Center and his team of colleagues have observed the high impact that body weight seems to have on patients with liver conditions. Over 71,446 liver transplantations among adults body weight became a very poignant point in the matter of situations. The data has also been reviewed and shared in the same vein through the United Network for Organ Sharing.
