Recurrence Rate After Kidney TransplantAbout 70% of uremia results from glomerulonephritis. And almost all patients with uremia caused by glomerulonephritis have a relapse after kidney transplant. In this article, let’s have a talk on recurrence rate after kidney transplant.

Why kidney disease relapses easily after kidney transplant?

That is because the root cause of kidney disease is not in kidneys, but in your body. For example, after being transported into a kidney patient, a healthy kidney can get illness again, whereas if a damaged kidney is transported into a healthy person, it can recover. From this point of view, the root cause of kidney disease is in your body rather than in the kidneys. Kidney disease is a kind of blood disease involving your immune system. If you just transport the kidney, you are still kidney patients.

Is it serious to get a recurrence?
