Abstract

This study examines changes in quality of life (QoL) experienced by diabetic recipients of kidney-only (n = 13) or pancreas-kidney (n = 12) allografts 6 months posttransplant. Both groups reported improvement in essentially all subscales of the Sickness Impact Profile, Quality of Life Index, Adult Self-Image Scales, and global QoL, although pancreas-kidney (PK) recipients consistently reported better scores. This difference occurred in 22 of 23 subscale scores and was significant for measures of ambulation, body care and movement, home maintenance, work, control over destiny, and independence-dependence. Composite and global measures were also better for the PK group with significant differences present for composite physical and self-image scores. This study presents prospective, pre- and posttransplant data demonstrating that PK transplantation has the potential to improve QoL for uremic diabetes more than does kidney-only transplantation.
